The iconic Old Grist Mill pattern by Royal China features blue and ivory colored scenes based on antique lithographs made by Nathaniel Currier and James Ives, the most famous printmakers in American history. This pattern was produced by the Royal China Company of Sebring, Ohio, between 1949 and 1986. Each piece is decorated with different quaint and rustic scenes. Interesting fact: during their early years of production, this pattern was marketed extensively through grocery-store chains and banks, which offered various pieces in the collection as incentives for opening new accounts. If your grandparents recognize the pattern of this tiered stand, you'll know why!
