Denwar Ceramics (aka Denwar Studios) of Costa Mesa, California was formed in 1946 by Esther Sietmann Warner and her husband Jo Dendel (hence: Den-War). Their dinnerware, inspired by their travels in Africa, was very popular in the 1950s. Dinnerware production ceased in 1961, when they placed their focus on tile and mosaic work.
These little plates are 6" x 6 3/4". There is slight color variation, but we want that, of course. I have included a 3rd picture showing the progression of OTHER sizes and shapes that I will be listing in this color. This auction is ONLY for the set of 3 middle sized plates. There are some light scratches on one of the pieces in this group, which is weird because it's a pretty small plate to be cutting on with a knife. Maybe it's a storage issue. I don't find the scratching to detract in any way from the overall look, and it is so light as to be unphotographable.
This is part of a large group of Denwar Bantu dinnerware which I will be listing over the next week or so. Guinea Gold is the other color. Of course, the green and the gold look great together. There is much fascinating information about Ms. Warner and Mr. Dendel - Google them! (But I have a feeling that if you're reading this, you already know what we've got here!)
