A sweet little Shenango China dish with a colorful flower wreath pattern. At only 5 1/2" in diameter, It might have been a butter dish or bread plate. The plate is a creamy ivory with red and yellow flowers and green leaves. See condition notes below.
Origin: marked "Shenango China, New Castle, PA." with a seated Native American. This appears to be the older version of the Shenango logo which was used prior to 1950. I could not, however, find this pattern anywhere so I can't pinpoint when it was made. (If you know the name and/or age, I would very much appreciate a convo).
Condition: Vintage, used. No cracks, chips, or repairs. The colors are bright and strong.
NOTE: There are some fine surface scratches, mostly confined to the middle of the plate. On the reverse there are three small ( 1/4" diameter) rough patches in the glaze that may be original from firing, or possibly from where it was displayed. (?)
Company background: After some web research I found the Shenango company started in 1901 and made china mostly for restaurants. Through the years, it absorbed other companies, and then Shenango was bought and sold by other a couple other companies in the 1960's, through the 1980's, including Anchor Hocking. The name ceased to be used in the late 1980's.
