Blakely Pottery/Stoneware dish set showing the Saguaro cactus design.
Blakely Pottery/Stoneware dish set showing the Century Plant cactus design.
Blakely came out with 2 types of dinnerware. Pottery or Stoneware and Fine China.
Shown here is the Pottery or Stoneware set from Universal Pottery.
The Pottery set is different from the Fine China in several ways.
If you decide to collect the pottery set of dinnerware, you will need to look for the following pieces in all 8 cacti designs.
The bowls and serving pieces are usually harder to find. With the hardest being the chili bowl.
The chili bowl is found on occasion in the Saguaro pattern. I have seen 1 mis-printed chili bowl in the Prickly Pear in all of my years collecting and that was just this past year 2009.
