I picked up these Maple Leaf pattern stoneware plates at a thrift store Saturday, after the estate sale I visited. They are stoneware and have a great texture on them. The cashier at the thrift store felt them and said "you're not going to eat off these are you?" I told her that of course I was. They are food and dishwasher safe. In fact, I picked them up mostly because my grandma has a set of them, and I love the style. The ones I have found online are marked Harmony House (Sears) which is a different marking than on the back than these. I looked all over the store for more pieces to the set, but all I found were the six dinner plates and the solitary saucer. I use mismatched saucers like this for spoon rests when I am cooking. I'm not a big fan of spoon rests. With a saucer, I can just toss it in the dishwasher and not worry about it.
Anyway, does anybody recognize this maker's mark? It looks like a stylized SR to me. The ones I have found online with the Harmony House marking are apparently from 1971. I'm just trying to figure out if these are also from 1971 with a different marking or if they might be a little newer.
Have a great Monday!
