usmc marine corp dinnerware various china place settings

The perfect Marine Promotion Gifts, Welcome Home Gifts, Marine Corps Gifts, Retirement Gifts or Christmas gift idea for that special U.S. Marine Enlisted or General Officer be it a military retirement gift for an enlisted Master or Top Sergeant, as a military promotion gift for a Marine Corps Officer, or even as a Graduation Gift for a Midshipman about to start his or her military career in the Marine Corp. Also very appropriate Gift for Marine as a fathers day or mothers day present, for a brother or sister in the Marine Corps, a husband or wife who wants to give a unique and personalized present! The offered USMC-issued China Plates, Dishes, Cups, Saucers, Knives, Forks and Spoons are all vintage 1900-1965 and used by the Marine's during WW1, WW2, Korea and Vietnam!

While The Pirate's Lair has an extensive inventory of available USMC Marine Corps dinnerware which can be purchased online via our shopping cart, or you can email or call us at 540 659-6209! However, please keep in mind that everything is on a first come, first serve basis and that this Marine Corp Dinnerware is VERY RARE and does not last "for sale" for very long! Most if not all of our offered USMC Marine Corps Dinnerware and Tableware is museum quality.

The photo to the left shows approximately a 50 year span and 2 patterns of USMC Marine Corps China and Dinnerware. In many cases you can approximate the date of a piece by the "Semper Fidelis" Banner on the USMC EGA Insignia. Prior to 1954 the EGA was "double bannered" with Semper on the left banner and Fidelis on the right banner. But in 1954 the Marine Corps slightly changed its EGA where "Semper Fidelis" was in a single banner. Sometime around WWII and prior there also is a difference in the Eagles Wings, "droopy vs. lifted up" - but we aren't going to get into that here!!!

The above photo shows the 6th Marines Mess Hall at Quantico, Virginia in 1915. Note the large white handless mugs which may or may not have been the standard US Navy enlisted mug. However, we have some very early china mugs stamped with the initials USMC 1905.

The below Information and Ordering Table provides a complete list of available U.S.M.C Marine Corps forks, spoons, knives, plates, dishes, bowls, cups and saucers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

USMC US Marine Corps China was used for both everyday dining as well as the more formal military "dining-in" ceremonies by Senior Officers and the Commandant! It iss an elegantly handsome vintage dinnerware, and incredibly unique as part of our American Military heritage. Best of all it can be used everyday and is the perfect promotion gift or retirement gift for any active or retired member of our U.S. Marine Corps!
It is available for sale now ... and it can be yours just by contacting The Pirate's Lair!

Of Special Note: This 40+ year old vintage USMC Marine Corps china tableware was hand crafted, hand glazed, hand dipped, hand stenciled, and they just don't make it like they used to!

Unfortunately, the US Marine Corp discontinued this time honored tradition of issuing this beautiful antique china in the mid-1960's after the manufacturer's supplies ran out, and it was never replaced. This further makes Marine Corps china a great investment! Currently only small quantities of this fine china can be found. The Pirate's Lair scours the world to obtain the best pieces to be found and makes them available to you.

Ironically, today individual Marine Corps Officers and Commanders now purchase this antique USMC-issued china from The Pirate's Lair for use in their present-day wardrooms and formal dining-in's! Marine Corp General Officers can now use and enjoy the same dinnerware and silverware used by their Corps bretheren of long ago!
