Deena Products was a lamp manufacturer out of Chicago with plants in Kentucky.
Weeping gold glazes were used by many china manufacturers and potteries. McCoy is the best known. Some named china brands, such as Savoy, were off-shoots of larger, unidentified companies and may be difficult to track down. Other makers include Dixon Art Pottery, Swetye, Bel-Terr, LeMieux, Gold Craft and Pioneer Pottery Company.
Many weeping gold pieces are not marked on the bottom with the name of a specific pottery company or manufacturer. Real gold pieces are stamped with the gold grade or have indications such as "Hand Decorated 22 K. Gold U.S.A." Paper or embossed foil labels were also used. Some are marked with the manufacturer's name. McCoy pieces will be marked with their name and "USA" or "Made in the USA," either embossed or incised. The style of the lettering helps to identify its approximate date. Weeping gold pieces have been found with McCoy markings indicating they were made in the period between 1940 through the 1960s.
