Jackson China was located in Falls Creek, Penn., for 70 years, from 1917 to 1987. The detail of a catalog page, left, is from Jackson's Illustrated Price List #11, estimated to have been printed circa 1930-1946.

It shows both shapes of Jackson flips, the rounded, St. Denis shape, right, and the very rare Conic shape.

From Jackson's early (1917-1930s) Soda Fountain Specials line comes this flip in the Conic shape.

It is the only one we've seen so far in either this shape or pattern. It is 5 3/4" x 2 7/8". Its lid was manufactured by Utilities Specialties.


This flip in a series of triangles on green band was also made in red (see below). Both are very hard-to-find; the red is considered truly rare.

They came in two sizes: 5 5/8" x 3 1/2" and 4 1/2" x 2 7/8".

The lids for both were made by Everclose. The backstamps are Measuring Device Corp.

The likely location for this bowl was the Ming Toy Restaurant at 212-214 Elm St. in Somerville, Mass. I'm pretty sure it's not from the current Ming Toy Restaurant in Waukegan, Ill.

Its lid was made by Everclose. One Cook's backstamp has been dated circa 1960-1970s.

This is the only flip seen to date with the single black and rust lines. It carries one of Jackson's earliest backstamps, dating from 1917 to the 1930s, and is identified in the book "Jackson China" as the Cumberland pattern. Its lid was manufactured by Utilities Specialties.

Deep blue stripes – very rare for Jackson or any other manufacturer!



Hummingbird pattern



Plain white stock china


The appearance of this flip probably puts to rest the mystery on this page, which has no backstamp.

This pattern is shown in Jackson's circa 1916-1930 catalog as #134, a stock pattern similar to that offered by most manufacturers of the era.

I have found no information on its distributor, Atlantic Paper and Restaurant Supply Co., located in New York. As always, if anyone can share any info about this business, it will be appreciated!

Photos were graciously shared by ebay seller littlescrt.


Below are Jackson flips in two sizes and two common colors of lines and bands: deep green and dark red. Many flips had chrome plated lids over brass, which frequently showed through from wear, as shown below. The third set of photos, though, shows flips with original brass lids.
