My best Wallace China pieces. Check out the 1 cup teapot. One of the few ashtrays in my collection. And only because it's Wallace. Can't go wrong with palm trees.

Three very interesting pieces (to me) Two airbrushed and one transfer. Airbrush pieces are always my favorites.Wallace prices can go through the roof. Good quality. Excellent graphic and paint work. And everything guaranteed to be at least 34 years old. El Rancho platters are listed in Schroeders for $135 I think. The big plate cost me $3.60 in Beaumont. Berry bowl was $3, and the creamer $10.
I like the horsey cup. 25 cents at the swap meet and nearly mint. The Meadows, Las Vegas. Restaurant? Casino Lounge? Someone let me know.

Wallace China
The Meadows, Las Vegas. Restaurant? Casino Lounge? Someone let me know.

Apple Valley Country Club and The Famous Pixie Kitchen which I've never heard of.
UPDATE: Actually I received several really cool emails regarding the Pixie Kitchen. Seems it was up in the state of Oregon and used to draw huge line-up-outside type of crowds. They had a Pixieland as well....If you go to Ebay and use Pixie Kitchen as the search word a ton of merchandise comes up. There seems to be quite a few PK collectors out there. A couple of times when searching at Ebay I found an amazing assortment of postcards, lobster bibs, restaurant china, original menus and quite a few porcelain pixies and mermaids which seem to go for a good bit of dough. Almost Roseville kind of prices!!! Well for their size anyway.

Wallace China Cartoon Cowboy pattern plates; I wish I had a picture of the backstamps as these are pretty unique.
Two are 8.25" and one is 6.25". These are actually marked: Shenango of California, which means they were made between 1959 and 1964 after Wallace China was bought by Shenango China.
