Just found these 2 Dinner plates.

Back is marked:

They are about 60 years old according to the information I found:

Vincent Broomhall looking over his wares at a trade show in the 1950s.

Continental Kilns & Vincent Broomhall
Continental Kilns was a pottery company in Chester, West Virginia which operated from 1944 until 1957.
It was spearheaded by designer Vincent Broomhall who intended to make translucent ware similar to Bellek.[1].
Most examples of Continental Kilns found today will be hand-painted patterns on semi-vitreous bodies.
Some of the most common patterns and pieces are:

Green Arbor - an embossed shape with pink or yellow flowers. Solid colors such as yellow also exist.
Woodleaf - yellow and brown floral on a square shape. Some pieces in contrasting brown.
Cat Tail - brown and green cat tail decoration. Some pieces in contrasting green.
Tropical - brown and green leaves
Tahiti - palm tree in browns and greens
Puritan - the Green Arbor shapes with gold trim
Bali Hai - red, green and brown floral
Stardust - brown leaves with green bursts
Child's Duck plates, bowls, and mugs in blue and pink
Borden's Elsie mugs
Jumbo "mother" and "father" cups
Snack plates
Trade Winds - coral and brown leaves
Luster - various pieces with pearlized glaze and gold trim
I once was lost.....but now I'm found.....
