Set of three melamine daisy pattern plates, 1960s.

Dinnerware made from melamine, a thermoset plastic material, was found in many homes from the 1940s through the 1970s.  During the 1930s, the raw material "melamine" hit an all-time low price. With heightening wartime threats and impending monetary constraints, American industrialists jumped on the bandwagon to make melamine into functional products for both commercial and household use.  The most well-known manufacturer of melamine was American Cyanamid with their name-branded version, "Melmac."

With so many colors and designs, there was melamine available to suit every taste.  This delightful daisy set was made by Allied Chemical in the 1960s.  Perfect for indoor or outdoor uses, especially for picnics and camping, these lightweight plates measure approximately 10" in diameter.
