Teevo421 showed his nice oval plate with the same pattern/insignia yesterday, and as soon as I saw it I thought I recognized it -- it took some digging thru dusty boxes this afternoon but I just *knew* I had this pair of old bowls somewhere?!! I've had 'em for years, no doubt from a junk store or someplace simply because (like Teevo, apparently?) they just appealed to me as "old" and "cool".
They are both 5-1/4" across, and unlike Teevo's plate are marked as made by SHENANGO CHINA of NEWCASTLE, PA. without any other date/pattern#. I don't know exactly how old they are but wouldn't be surprised if they're 1930's-40's -- frankly they've both got assorted chips/crazing/wear to suggest they've served *many, many* helpings of applesauce or green beans or whatever during their previous life...?? ;-) :-) :-)
