I am a dinnerware and restaurantware collector. There has been some debate over which dinnerware was used in the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor in the 1950s and early 1960s. Sterling China produced a line of restaurantware with airbrushed carnations. Here's a link if your curious what it looks like.
The entry on that site claims this pattern was used in the Disneyland Carnation Ice Cream Parlor. Recently it was discovered that Carnation Milk also had a chain of family restaurants with a few still in operation. So I am hoping someone here will be able to help with clarifying if the dinnerware line was used in Disneyland or at the chain locations or both. Any input would be appreciated...Thanks JIM
