I would think they are from the post-Leeteg period, I am sure Quinn's eventually tried to capitalize on its fame, and made mementos like these for sale. How far back does the custom of imprinted restaurant ware go? Where were these made? Where are the dish collectors who can tell?



you may be right- these definately have that vintage look with the painted bases, but these must be from the late 60's up till it closed in 73'....i don't see any sense in making souveniers of a place after it has been torn down. there is a makers mark on the bottom with the name of the china co. that made them....i'll post it when i get home later today...
