Robinson-Baker Pattern

Most so called "Soo Line Robinson-Baker" china is just old restaurant china falsely described as Soo Line railroad china.    The authentic Soo Line dinner ware is MARKED for the Soo Line - was made by Bauscher, and is extremely rare.    The unmarked stuff seen for sale by shifty on-line auction marketers is just nearly worthless restaurant china that had nothing to do with the Soo Line.     The RR china books may not make this clear, but if you want authentic Soo Line ware, you will want to stick with Soo-marked Bauscher items.
