Arbor

Manufacturer: Mayer China
Pattern name: Arbor / King Pin
Dates: unknown
Notes: Known colors are red (shown), blue, green and black (rare - also shown), and the new addition here, pink and black.

An interesting but unsubstantiated story goes that this pattern was originally designed for use in a mental institution where the patients served each other and they wanted a pattern that wouldn't show fingerprints.

An early undated Mayer catalog first lists this pattern as King Pin, as shown below. A later 1964 catalog lists this as Arbor. It is not know when or why the name change occurred.

Chintz-like pattern of leaves and flowers, found on white, ivory and tan (Mayan Ware) bodies.
