This Orchard Ware California Pottery Dogwood Cup and Saucer was made by Ceramic Manufacturing Company. It is decorated with a branch of raised white dogwood flowers in full bloom growing on one side of the cup and up one side of the dove gray saucer.
Orchard Ware in the Dogwood pattern was made by California Ceramics, also known as Ceramic Manufacturing Company in the 1940s and 1950s.
The cup is 3-7/8 inches in diameter and 2-inches deep. (Add another inch for the handle.) The saucer is 6-1/16 inches in diameter.
The backstamp, only on the saucer, is a black underglaze tree with the words "Orchard Ware Hand Decorated" followed by "Made in California."
There is a 1-mm chip on the edge of the cup near the handle and both pieces have heavy non-discolored crazing. The condition is reflected in the price.
