    Hmmmm... I don't think this plate is all that old. Maybe from the 60's or 70's? Still a nice plate though.

    This is interesting. From your link:

    "On Armistice Day 1925, local businessman Robert Kloeppel announced to crowds in downtown Jacksonville that a luxury hotel would be built. The local firm of Marsh and Saxelbye served as architects. Other investors built the Hotel Roosevelt (then called the Carling Hotel) to compete with Kloeppel, and both hotels were constructed throughout 1926. On December 15, the George Washington was complete."

    And from the link for Syracuse China dates:

    If I'm reading it correctly, the mark on the back of the plate, G-8, means it was manufactured in the 8th month of 1926, which makes this a plate ordered for the opening of the hotel?
