Longhorn 2

Manufacturer: Wallace China
Pattern: Longhorn
Date of plate: 1955
Date of creamer: circa 1951
Notes: This pattern is part of Wallace's Westward Ho series, designed by Till Goodan and originally produced for the Wentz Company between 1943 and 1964. Till Goodan began receiving recognition for his Western art in the 1930s after he spent his early years riding, roping and drawing on his family farm in California.

A wholesale company purchased two of GoodanÂ’s paintings to put on display at a trade show. The paintings caused so much interest that plans were made to meet with Goodan. The Westward Ho dinnerware featuring his designs was the outcome of that meeting.

This pattern was produced on a white base and a tan (buckskin) base, as shown below. The Longhorn pattern is the hardest-to-find of the Wallace China western patterns. The tan pieces are much harder to find, as they were but a tiny subset of the pieces made in this pattern.

Tan body with dark brown transfer border of longhorn cattle and a cowboy on a horse riding herd in the 12 o'clock position. The plate is center-marked with a design of a large longhorn cattle head in shades of brown and rust.
