Made by Stetson China Co., Lincoln, IL
This colorful and durable dinnerware was definitely the fashion during the late forties and the fifties. In 1946 Joseph W. Stetson, a designer of dinnerware, moved from Chicago to take over the Illinois China Company that had been in operation in Lincoln, Illinois, since 1919. By 1955 Stetson claimed to be the largest manufacturer of individual hand-painted ceramic dinnerware in the United States.
