Pattern: Repo Litho 1991 Memories
Date of plate: 1990 & 1991
Notes: Originally manufactured by Syracuse China, these western-themed pieces use the same Wallace China Rodeo pattern design, including the original artist Till Goodan's signature.
US Copyright VA0000419018, issued July 10, 1990 indicates that this pattern design was registered by the company Memories for its Roundup Brands/Till Goodan. This new design registration was an "adaption of design and additional artwork and reproduction of drawing by photolithography on ceramic."
Given the backstamp information it is evident that Syracuse China and Memories were in partnership on these pieces. However, it is unknown if these pieces were produced by Syracuse and then subsequently decorated as overglazed designs by Memories or whether Syracuse commissioned Memories solely for the design and then manufactured the pieces.
