Looks like ShopRite spring water and Fiestaware, maybe even one of the discontinued colors.

Fiestaware is very high quality china, very collectable, and American made.

Not kidding. :D
Since the re-organization, the company has experienced continued growth and is poised to move forward with the Wells Family’s pledge to continue producing quality, American-made china and provide jobs for potters of the Ohio Valley.

Almost immediately after Fiesta was discontinued in January 1973, collectors began buying heavily in second-hand shops and the newly popular Garage Sales. Due to the enormous popularity of Fiesta in the secondary market, its prices skyrocketed. By the end of the 1970s and into the 1980s, Fiesta items once costing pennies were commanding nearly a hundred U.S. dollars for scarcer items. By the mid-1980s, prices had climbed higher. Certain pieces and colors were being traded for hundreds of dollars

I think it is mostly from Walmart. :D :D We also bought matching smaller plates and some other stuff, it is marked Fiesta. New, but factory seconds, or you can spend the big money and get first quality, comes out of a place down the road from here called La Anna PA. Holley Ross pottery. It's a nice place to visit. http://www.holleyross.com/ And the copper is not real copper, it's metal, tin, copper painted. $34 a 2x4 sheet and they ship it in a wooden crate so shipping is a killer from Texas, we did 2 walls http://www.thetinman.com/finishes_copper.htm

just the swinging bridge and walking path to the lake past the newfoundland creek is worth the trip to holly ross. I know Ross and he is still doing well. He and his late brother Holly (rip) have been making fine items for over 47 years...

I bought my complete set of fiesta ware there, purple, and love it. He's got that big bad Volvo truck that he goes down to the carolinas to get some product..

on this subject, I vote for basic cabinets and if the sale dictates it have a guy like brock make the fronts to match the others...

he could zip up from sunbury during a coal bucket brigade run and get a sample for cloning...... 8-)
