Dorchester Melmac Dishes in Orange and Floral Pattern 1960’s

7 Jul

Dorchester melmac

This partial dish set was manufactured by Dorchester Dinnerware who bought their plastic mold powders from American Cyanamid Co. Only companies that used Cyanamid plastic could name their wares Melmac. By the fifties there were over a hundred companies throughout the states (and a few in Canada) that bought from Cyanamid.  I don’t know the actual date of the dishes, but the colours suggest the sixties rather than the fifties.  The plates have been used but still have lots of life in them.  The cups and bowls are in really nice clean condition.

Priced at  $45 for the set.

These will be availabe at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte Ont.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!

      I have not heard of Fiestawood. I was not able to locate anything with that label when I searched online. Is there more information, such as where it was made, on the underneath? Thanks

    Sorry, I was mistaken on closer inspection it is actually Flintwood. I was able to find it at that point. Interesting reading about it’s content though. Thanks
