Grecian pattern silveware

Erie Lackawanna Grecian pattern has been reproduced.  The telltale sign is that these items were made by "World Silver"- not International Silver, as were the authentic item.





(Note: The use of the word "counterfeit" to describe this china is not meant to imply that it is "good" or "bad" - for our purposes, the intentions of the counterfeiters are irrelevant.  Authentic dining car china was made to be dining car china, counterfeit china was made to look like dining car china.  Well done or not, it is not authentic dining car china, and if it is not clearly marked as a reproduction, then it is counterfeit.)
