Ovenex ECKO Loaf Tin Pan with Starburst Pattern

This is a Ovenex ECKO Loaf Tin Pan with Starburst Pattern made of folded tin!

Edward Katzinger immigrated to the United States in the 1880s and settled in Chicago. He was a tinsmith and mechanic by trade. He set up shop to make tin pans for commercial bakeries. In a 1920s sales letter from the company, it’s stated that “they were the largest company in the tin pan business because they made nothing but tin pans.”

The company’s name quickly shortened to Ekco as the brand name. By the 1930s, kitchen tools and utensils were added to the line after they acquired the A&J Company. In 1939, Edward’s son, Arthur, took over the company. From the 1940s there were several acquisitions including a cutlery firm, a metal stamping plant, a wood products company, and a plastics molder. All were combined under the Ekco name. By the 1950s, the company was heralding itself as “the greatest name in housewares,” and to be honest they did make just about every imaginable kind of pan, utensil or gadget.

Vintage Vitrified Ridgway Diner Fruit Nappy

This is a vintage vitrified Ridgway diner fruit nappy with forest green rings. This nappy is from the Ridgway Potteries Ltd., Ash Hall, Stoke-on-Trent, at Bedford Works, Shelton. That pottery was founded by Edward J. Ridgway, son of the famous Master Potter William Ridgway of Hanley.

“Well-known in the ceramic industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Job and George Ridgway, of Shelton, are mentioned on Allbuts’ map of 1802, and in 1820 they were making extensively for the American market, being among the leading potters supplying the New World with decorated wares-showing American buildings, scenery, arms of the United States, portraits of Washington and other Americana.

John Ridgway was honoured by being appointed Potter to Her Majesty Queen Victoria and earned high commendation at the 1851 Exhibition. The catalogue informs the Victorian public that ‘The Establishment of Mr. Ridgway is one of the largest and among the best conducted of the many factories of Staffordshire’.

Ridgway materially assisted in establishing a School of Design and founded a scholarship in this connection. The present firm specializes in vitrified wares, tiles and a full range of earthenware tea and dinner sets.”
