Pfaltzgraff Pottery Co. POTTERY by PFALTZGRAFF (Catalog Reprints From 1935 & 1936). The Pfaltzgraff Pottery Co. [York, PA]. 1935 & 1936. 6 pages each. 8 1/2' x 11 1/2'. Offset-printed on paper from good photocopies of the originals. These are actually called 'Price Lists', but illustrate each shape along with its casting or stock number, dimensions, & original price. The illustrations are in black & white as they were in the originals. 'Price List No. 6' (Effective July 1, 1935) shows 111 shapes & lists the 18 colors available for each. 'Price List No. 7' (Effective January 1, 1936) shows 108 shapes along with a listing of the 16 available colors. Several shapes were added & several deleted from the 1936 catalog which also dropped 2 colors. These catalogs document Pfaltzgraff's short venture into Art Pottery in response to both the Depression & the growing threat of imported pottery. The dramatic departure from their traditional shapes & colors into Art Deco designs with lively colors was began in 1932 and ended in 1937 shortly after Price List No. 7 was issued. Priced as a pair.
