The Deanna shape was first made by Knowles in the late 1930s and into the 1950s. Round shape with a narrow band of rings at the rim and on the handles and finals of the hollowware. Made in solid colors, terra tan body, hand-painted plaid treatments, and with decals. The flatware (plates and bowls) as well as the shakers were used with other lines namely Beverly and Aladdin. The double egg cups were also picked up by several other shapes. Deanna is usually marked with general Knowles backstamp.
