China & Plates From Clubs, Restaurants, Hotels, and Lodges - Wanted (Riderwood / Timonium)

I'm looking for plates / dishes (especially dinner plates from 9" to 12" diameter) from country clubs, restaurants, lodges, boats, trains, and hotels. A lot of times, people on trips would snitch a plate as a souvenir. Then again, sometimes they were honest and actually paid for them.

They don't have to be ancient -- but they must have the name of a club, restaurant, lodge, or hotel on the top surface of them. That's what the fun is for me. Not looking to spend much... This is for a hobby -- I use whatever I can find as my every-day tableware.

Because I'm looking for actual tableware to use, I'm not interested in souvenir-type things; e.g. shot glasses, ashtrays, mugs given out at conventions, plates given out as souvenirs to commemorate elections, anniversaries, etc. Also, I'm not looking for modern "advertising" things such as Coca-Cola tableware, bowls from breakfast cereal companies, sports team things... I only want plates and dishes which were actually used in restaurants, clubs, hotels, lodges, boats, trains, etc. And they need to have the name of the restaurant/club/hotel/etc. on the top surface.

If you only have 1 or 2 pieces, that's fine -- so long as you're not too far away from Timonium. The more, the merrier. Please send me a picture if you can, and tell me the cost. Again, I'm not looking for expensive things: These plates are things that I'll use as tableware.

Thank you.
