Willow Pattern

Post by Les Smith » Fri Aug 16, 2019 4:12 am

Hi can anybody shed any light on these "dinnerware" items please. I understand they may have been produced by Pyrex as early as the 1930's.
I have a set of 6 dinnerplates, 6 soup/pudding bowls, 6 tea plates and the items shown in the attached photo.
I am just interested to learn about their history

Thanks

Les

According to Dots & Diamonds (see www.thatretropiece.com) the pattern (on clear dinnerware) was introduced in 1934, and other verbiage seems to indicate was produced until 1939. It was at first just etched into the glass with no color applied, then etched and enameled, and finally just applied via "the transfer process" which I assume means either decal or screen printed. The shapes in undecorated clear glass were available until at least 1960. The pattern debuted on JAJ ovenware in 1961.
