The photo to the left shows the 2nd type of first class china used onboard the Empress - Faucille. This is the only intact piece I have seen, and viewed a broken dinner plate once before. It is unknown why this pattern was made in such small quantities for CPR. You can view several other photos of the museum online at: http://www.pbase.com/kiml/empress.
