Here is a charming vintage espresso cup and saucer made by Shenango for Howard Johnson’s restaurant, and bearing the "HoJo" Pieman logo in shrimp-colored stencil work on both cup and saucer. Both pieces are also encircled with fine lines of the same color. The cup bears embossed waving lines below the rim and above the base, giving depth to the plain, clean shape. The saucer is adorned by the pieman motif, a shrimp-colored ring and a handsomely scalloped edge. Cup measures 3 1/4" rim to handle end x 2 1/2” tall; saucer is 4 1/2" wide x 1/2” high.
Mark on saucer is a black outline picture of a Native American potter over Shenango / China / USA / Rim Rol Wel Roc N - 22 / over trade mark and copyright marks. N-22 is code for January-June, 1964 production. Mark on cup is black underglaze Snenango China / Newcastle, Pa. / U.S.A. / C-22 (the mark for July-December, 1964). In excellent condition.
