Hostess by Knowles
Hostess was a decal shape made by Knowles form the mid-1930s and into the 1940s. The flatware is round with wide rim which made it perfect for "border deacals." Hollowware can be identified by the pedestal feet, angluar handles, and formal style finials. Pieces are usually marked with a general Knowles backstamp as well as the shape name.
