Place of Origin

Maker Lifetime China

Maker Details Lifetime China based in Alliance, Ohio, was one of the sales organizations of the Cunningham & Pickett Group of Alliance Ohio. Lifetime was a distributor of dinnerware, not a manufacturer. Their products were distributed from 1953 through 1968, with most of these being made by the Homer Laughlin China Company. Most Lifetime China china bares a pattern name as part of the backstamp, making identification easy.
