Vintage Shenango China Gray Spraymist Bowl

Vintage Shenango China Gray Spraymist Bowl


From the corner diner, to the bustling bistro, to your very own kitchen cupboard at home, restaurant china is as popular as ever. This American-made china has stood the test of time for good reason: it's sturdy, unpretentious, classic and true.   

Produced by the now-defunct Shenango China Company, these classic bowls have a warm grey spraymist decoration around their rim. Traditionally used in restaurants and diners for serving half a grapefruit, these bowls are also ideal for cereal, yogurt, a small salad or dessert.

Strictly limited quantities and subject to prior sale. Dishwasher, Microwave and Oven Safe. 6.5" in diameter.

Learn More About Shenango China

Founded in 1901, Shenango China was a major producer of quality restaurantware and even provided china for the White House during the terms of Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson.

With its reputation for the best quality, Shenango was commissioned to manufacture "American Haviland" for the French company Theodore Haviland from 1936 through 1958. A German company also commissioned Shenango to make china to sell in the United States under the “Castleton China” brand.

The company's logo of a cross-legged Native America Indian - viewed as if you were standing to his right side and behind him - decorating a piece of pottery was first used in 1912. Although there isn't an official Shenango tribe, the name comes from the displaced Seneca tribe that settled along the Shenango River in the 1700s. This logo appeared in various forms through 1979 and represented the spirit of North America's first potters. 

The kilns of Shenango China no longer produce their beautiful wares as the company was closed in 1991.
