Having looked at your box, I'm thinking these were probably from 1960-1974. McCoy Pottery History says, "McCoy sold in 1967 to the owners of the Mt. Clemens Pottery Co., although Nelson McCoy, Jr., remained as president of the pottery. After about seven years of operation..."
All your photos are here, Della. It's really a lovely set of pottery.
I'm not sure but here's a really good article about identifying fake pottery: Real or Repro. It might help you discern what you have. Let me just say, it's complicated! :)
Ellene is correct, I live right down the road from Mt. Clemens MI. in a small Twp. I think it was the other way round though? We were told in the newspapers that McCoy had actually bought out Mt. Clemens pottery? The pottery wasn't doing well at that time ( Like all our USA potteries) Which is why the owners sold out to McCoy, in an effort to save the buisness. It still went under a few years later :( The land where the pottery was is now a big Storage biz - Yuck!
So your Dishes fall into that small window of time where the marking is a combination of both companies when they merged. So they are "McCoy" officially, however you have the unusual marking from the mid 70's time period.
Thanks, Vicki! I was hoping you would drop by with some sound information! :)
Hi Della, Yes I could see your pictures, but in future you may instead want to use the little blue button above. It will post your pics right here on the page! It's much easier to help that way, for us, and you will probably get more attention for your items. :)
Just click on the blue button, instead of the link one, then browse and post your photos!
MCP doesn't stand for McCoy Pottery Company.
It stands for Mount Clemens Pottery.
Your pieces are Mount Clemens ironstone. "Petal-Yellow" is pattern (I think); Replacements.com shows scalloped rim plate, light yellow-Discontinued. Link:
