- Pattern: PCP31, Floral – Discontinued
- Made in Paden City, WV, USA
- Vintage: 1942
- Details: This is a very old, very beautiful pattern made by Paden City Pottery. This multi-color floral decal pattern does not have name, it is listed as PCP31 on the Replacements website. This is an extremely hard to find decal pattern, this dinner plate is a RARE find. This piece was originally issued as a dinner plate, however it would be so hard to complete even one matching place setting, we think, because of the pretty “handles” on this plate, that it makes the prefect small Cake or Cookie Serving Plate. The gold on the handles is 22 K-Gold. There is a backstamp with their early logo: “The Paden City Pottery Co., Made in U.S.A”. There is a code E 42, we know the 42 is the year the plate was made, unsure about the E. This plate is NOT dishwasher safe, Hand Wash is necessary in order to maintain condition.

The Paden City Pottery Company was the town of Paden City’s first industry. Located in West Virginia, it started in 1914 and led by president, George R. Wallace, originally manufacturing kitchen and art ware in brown and white. In the 1920’s their new president, Charles S. Ray, announced a complete change in their wares, they started making semi-porcelain dinnerware, and as they say, the rest is history. Through the years they introduced new lines (shapes), new decals. They were one of the first dinnerware companies to produce an oven-proof line called Bak-Serv introduced in 1931 for exclusive distribution by the Great Northern Products Company in Chicago. One of their most popular shapes was Caliente, introduced in 1936. In the 1950’s they even had Russel Wright designed one of their patterns called Highlight, which was exclusively distributed by Justin Tharaud, a very well known pottery and glass salesman of the day. Unfortunately due to increased competition in the early 1960’s Paden City Pottery dissolved in 1963.
