catmom6 Store VINTAGE WALLACE CHINA DESERT WARE
CUP & SAUCER SET
squat cups--2 1/2" tall
saucers--5 1/2" wide
This style of Wallace Desert Ware was used in the restaurant chain called Eaton's, I believe in the 1930s-50s. I have heard the patterncalled "Mexican Man" and the "8-Y" stamped on the bottom dates production to July 1947. (At least 1 saucer is stamped "12-Y" which would be August 1947.)
These pieces are in very good condition due to the quality stoneware and the heavy glaze. None of the pieces have stains or crazing. There are light surface scratches as would be expected and 3 small spots on bottom of the saucers where the glaze is worn, I assume from stacking.A few pieces have tiny random spots of paint that I think is under the glaze. This happened during production and is not considered to be damage. One cup has a small spot on the bottom that looks like a slice or cut. This appears to have happened during production as well. It is not a crack.None of the pieces have paint loss except for 1 cup which has a small spot missing from the stripe on the handle. I'm not sure, but I think this handle may have been broken and put back on. If this is the case, it was done fairly well and is not real noticeable.Please refer to the last picture. There is a small gap where the top of the handle meets the cup.
