Offered are Four Shenango China Rimmed Cereal Bowls in very good condition. We think this is pattern SHO82 . The pattern has been difficult to identify.

The pattern is of maroon lines intersected by short black lines all on an off-white glazed body. The line work is about 1/4 inch wide and is rimarily on the rim, just ducking into the verge of the bowl when the straight lines demand it. The bowls are 6-3/8 inches in diameter and are 1-5/8 inches tall at the rim.

The bowls are in very good condition. T are NO chips, NO cracks, NO fleabites and NO crazng on these bowls. One bowl has suffered an impact directly on its bottom leading to 6 lines radiating out from that damage point up to the the foot of the bowl. The lines do not travel into the interior of the bowl and are confined by the strengthened foot of the bowl. The colors are bright and vivid without fading or utensil damage.

The bowls are all marked with the colored mark of the Shenango China Co. It is the Indian seated on the rectangular carpet . This mark was used from the 1930's to the early 1950's. As this mark does not have a date code, it places the bowls as pre-1950 when date coding was begun.

Two bowls have the 'Shenango China New Castle, PA' mark alone. Two bowls are marked 'Shenango China New Castle, PA furnished by Arthur Schiller & Son, Inc Chicago New York'
