Pacific Pottery Coralitos

CORALITOS
Pacific Coralitos Logo

An enduring gift from California! Pacific Pottery launched Coralitos in 1937 in response to changing consumer tastes in dinnerware color palettes, designs, and style. While Pacific Pottery continued to produce their popular Hostessware, this was an opportunity to create new dinnerware lines for the marketplace. In the few short years it was available, Pacific produced the line in six colors: Cielito Blue, Coral, DuBonnet (maroon), Verdugo Green (chartreuse), Mission Ivory, and Dorado Yellow. The Coralitos line was still relatively small and was not likely produced after 1940.

PIECE LIST

The 32-piece Coralitos six place setting starter set, included luncheon and B&B plates, soup bowls, cups and saucers, along with a chop plate and vegetable bowl. All items could also be purchased as open stock.

The piece list highlights the full range of pieces available and their prices when the line launched. While not listed here, the salad bowl was offered in two much larger sizes, including 12″ and 16″ as part of the artware line, which was often labeled with the Coralitos sticker. Later period artware (and the occasional Hostessware piece) can be found in Coralitos glazes.

Coralitos marks are in-mold and designated with an “X” in front of the piece number. The name “Pacific” may or may not be included in the mark. You may also see foil labels with the Coralitos brand name.

Towards the end of Pacific’s dinnerware production in 1941-42, the Coralitos shape was often used to test out new decal-based designs. With production shutting down in 1942, none of these sets were widely produced.
