Winfield Pottery/China Company - Dinnerware

Winfield Pottery was founded in 1929 and continued in production until 1962. The company began in Pasadena, California but moved to Santa Monica in 1946. After 1946, Winfield sold some of their rights to the American Ceramics Company so they began to mark their pottery with the name "Gabriel". Gabriel pieces are harder to find and identify but some of their patterns are identical to Winfield's. I carry pieces from eleven known patterns and several unidentified patterns.


Winfield's avocado pattern is done in a two-tone green. It depicts an avocado fruit with its leaves.

Green Passion Flower

We haven't found anyone that really knows the name of this Winfield pattern. It is nearly the same as the pink Passion flower pattern except for the shape of the flower and the colors. Since the flower depicted is, in fact, a passion flower, we choose to call it that.
