In today’s mail


Thanks to “Come and Get It,” a splendid reference book on western dinnerware by Corinne Joy Brown, I’ve discovered several other manufacturers besides Wallace China who make the kind of stuff I like.

This is a 6” lunch plate from the Tepco “Western Traveler” series with scenes comeandgetitcommemorating the Pony Express. Tepco was a California company that operated from 1918 to 1968. Ms. Brown says the artist’s name is unknown.

Here’s what her book looks like. It’s the most authoritative book on western dinnerware I’ve found and I’ve learned a lot from it. I’ve embedded a hyperlink to its page, so just click on the book cover image to see more.
