Flintridge China produced a wide range of fine china dinnerware, with both solid colors and patterned versions. I actually didn’t find the company in Chipmans Calif Scrapbook, so the information presented here is from other online sources.
Based in Pasadena, they appear to have produced china for a fairly long period of time. They started in the 1940s and went up until 1970 or so, when they were purchased by Gorham who repurposed many of the lines and items. I’m uncertain how long Gorham kept producing the items after they bought Flintridge out. The china itself is said to have rivaled the top names of the day.
Many pieces are found in a single solid color, perhaps with white, and often gilded with silver or gold. Floral and other patterns are sometimes found, though I’ve read that those are less popular. It seems correct, as I’ve seen many examples of solid color items in stores but hardly any patterned ones.
Flintridge is often marked with a gold leaf stamp on the bottom - but I’ve seen full sets with no markings whatsoever. I’m not sure if they originally had a paper sticker, or if there was never any marking to begin with.
