This is a 1950 magazine advertisement for Blue Ridge Dinnerware made by Southern Potteries, Inc. - Shown is the Skyline "Forest Fruit" pattern.
Blue Ridge is a type of American dishware manufactured by Southern Potteries Incorporated from the 1930s until 1957. Well known in their day for their underglaze decoration and colorful patterns, Blue Ridge pieces are now popular items with collectors of antique dishware. The underglaze technique made the decorations more durable, and while basic patterns were reused consistently, the fact that each piece was hand-painted means that no two pieces are exactly alike.
