US Flag Decorated EnamelwareBy Mark Chervenka
Flag Decorated Enamelware
There is a new line of "enamelware" decorated with crossed American flags. The white enamel is chipped and distressed to appear old. The flag decorations are apparently silkscreened or stenciled in unfired paint. Rims are painted either red or blue. Rims on our samples were very sloppy with obvious blurring, drips and smears (Fig. 1, arrow).
At least three different pieces are known: a 9″ by 1″ plate shown in Fig. 2, a 10″ by 1½″ plate and a 12″ by 1″ tray. All pieces cost less than $12 each.
