more white ironstone

 Brown tags were 1/2 off!  
So it was a little difficult to pass up these 6 white ironstone mugs.
 Removing the sticker, I found this mark - a buffalo with a number
 on four of the mugs.  The other two were marked Oneida.
I'm still researching the origins of these heavy pieces--
and at only seventeen cents, I'm thrilled to add them to my collection of white ironstone.
(Though it's not soup season, I think they'd make wonderful soup mugs!)

  1. Really nice as white goes with everything. Yes...soup mugs...but also ice cream outside in the summer! What a price

  2. Buffalo Pottery started in Buffalo, New York at the turn of the 20th century, fulfilling coupon orders from Larkin Soap for soap dishes. Buffalo pottery made semi-vitreous restaurant ware but is most famous for colorful Deldare Ware. The Book of Buffalo Pottery by Violet and Seymour Altman, published in 1969, is the leading publication on the company. Most Buffalo pottery is marked and sometimes includes an image of a buffalo." Found this on the Internet. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

    1. Thanks, Linda! I haven't found this exact mark - but some indication that Oneida bought the plant at some point....
