I am not POSITIVE these are all Savoy. One piece has a label. The others have the same lettering on the bottom (24K gold - made in USA). I guess I need to figure out if they have collectible value. They're in my parents' estate, which I am settling. From what I'm reading on the web, they're not exactly junk. Anyone have an idea how old the Savoy dripped-on-looking gold china is?

    EXCELLENT! The tulip vase is, of course, Savoy. The large clamshell and the ribbed piece should be marked "24kt gold, made in USA" on the bottom. The salt and pepper I don't know.

    Thanks, Savoy! They are gaudy, but impressively gaudy, I must say. I may have to build a display case for some of the trinkets my folks left behind.

    Actually, I love them! I used to think they were Savoy and so I collected them. I have since learned that they are Cameron Clay Products from CameronWV. Check this out...http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/804-cameron-clay-works-cameron-wv?in=user

    Interesting... thanks! You mean even the one with the Savoy label was made by Cameron, or that our pieces may be a mix of both?

    The Savoy is Savoy. However, there are no records of where it is made. The two Cameron pieces were made in Cameron, WV. The S&P...are they marked in any way?

    No, the shakers aren't marked. The two (unlabelled) larger pieces have the "24K - made in USA" on bottom, and seem to be the same color inside as the Savoy tulip vase.

    Look at your photo. The Savoy is a baby blue and has a "watered down" look. The Cameron is a deep, rich turquoise color. Typically the Cameron pieces come in gold plus either turquoise, black, or white. Savoy may have up to 14 color variations .

    Aha... my eyes are old and up past my bedtime . But I guess I do see a difference in color. (My wife is always pointing out to me what color things really are - LOL)

    And... I just found an antique dealer's listing for a Cameron piece, and the stamp on the bottom is identical to that on the two pieces we have. According to that listing, they were making the stuff in the 1950s. Not antiquities, but fun and collectible kitsch.
