Currier & Ives Set of Dishes, Blue and White Pattern

currier & Ives  currier & Ives 2

Currier & Ives Dinnerware was produced by the Royal China Company of Sebring Ohio, US.  The backstamps indicate the pattern as ‘Early Winter’ on the rim soup bowls and the dinner plates say ‘The Old Grist Mill’.  Each piece has a different scene and a different pattern name.  Pieces were given away at the A & P with purchases of groceries and the completer pieces could be purchased separately. It was produced from 1950 to about 1970 when Jeannette Glass bought the company and discontinued the pattern. It was brought back in the mid 70’s and contiuned production until 1986.  This backstamp indicates to me that it is an earlier set, so anywhere from the 50’s to early 70’s.

This is a complete set of  8 place settings consisting of dinner plate, side plate, soup bowl, dessert bowl, cup and saucer.

The set is for sale for $175.00.  It is in immaculate condition,  with no utensil marks that I can see, and no chips or other problems.  I doubt if it was ever used much.
