The mainstay of the pottery’s sales was sets of children’s tablewares, or “Bread and Milk Sets,” that could be personalized with a name or birthdate. In 1914, a writer for House Beautiful proclaimed these sets “so popular that if one is broken, pieces are brought in to exactly match, for the children will have no other.”

Inscription

"S.E.G / 4[04 6]-19 / SG [conjoined]" "PAUL" and "HIS . BOWL"
