The Chessie pattern plates were made for the Chespeake & Ohio Railroad by Buffalo China. We could not find any record that Carr also furnished this pattern, so this plate could have been a sample plate, made with the hope of securing an order from the C&O.

According to the Wikipedia, Chessie was etched by Viennese artist Guido Gruenwald, shown below. It was part of the railroad's advertising campaign, "Sleep Like a Kitten."
