Pacific Pottery Buffet Server Set - Wheat

Pacific 453, 452, 411 Buffet Server Set (Wheat Spray – Pacific Blue)

A decorated Hostessware coffee set from Pacific Pottery in the Pacific Blue glaze featuring the “Wheat” pattern. This set includes the #452 16″ serve-all tray with six #411 tumblers and the #453 buffet bottle with lid. This outstanding coffee buffet server set featuring the “Wheat” pattern was produced around 1935-37. According to period advertising, the original set was sold with four tumblers (listed as “coffee mugs”) for $8.65. I acquired the server from a Los Angeles pottery dealer and the buffet bottle and tumblers from another San Francisco collector in 2016.

More information on Pacific Pottery’s decorated Hostessware line and pattern index is available on The Maximalist website.

In 1934, Pacific Pottery introduced their “decorated” lines – a series of glazed patterns on the Hostessware shape. Around 50 decorated Hostessware patterns have been found, but many of the patterns are undocumented. Pacific Pottery decorated Hostessware may sometimes have a painted notation or stamp on the bottom indicating a pattern ID.
