Dinnerware used in the United States from the 1930s through the 1970s is listed here. Most was made in potteries in southern Ohio, West Virginia, and California. Inexpensive dinnerware that was used every day was given as premiums in grocery stores and movies and sold in dime stores. A few patterns were made in Japan, England, and other countries. Dishes were also sold in gift shops and department stores. Many of these patterns are listed in their own categories, such as Autumn Leaf, Azalea, Coors, Fiesta, Franciscan, Hall, Harker, Harlequin, Red Wing, Riviera, Russel Wright, Vernon Kilns, Watt, and Willow.
