The building of the Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) was fundamental in bringing the nation of Canada together. The last ceremonial spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven on November 7, 1885; however, the need for other work besides the track itself meant that the railway did not actually open until June 1886.
Here is a nice old railroad theme pitcher or stein. It measures 6 1/2" high, 6 1/2" across and has a 5" base. The pitcher depicts a man in western garb standing beside a moving train. The name on the train is Canadian Pacific Railroad. In the left lower hand corner it says Canada 1886. This is a lovely old pitcher in fabulous vintage condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. The exact age is unknown to me. A wonderful addition to any collector of railroad/train memorabilia!
