Steve's Cup of the Day

 

Cup #004

Off white cup decorated with yellow laminate and lined in red.

 

Albert Pick Co. Inc. distributor backstamp used in1930s-1940s. No manufacturer mark. Production is limited to two companies, Buffalo China or Sterling China, since this decoration technique was applied exclusively by these two firms. Buffalo produced their "Colorido Lamelle" in the 1930s, which matches the Pick distributor mark. Sterling China made "Sterling Inlay" in the 1940s and 1950s, but their B-9 date code represents 1959, which is out of range for the Albert Pick mark.
