The Delphian shape was created in 1934. It was made with plaid embossing around the rim of flatware and towards the bases of the hollowware. The teapot, gravy, casserole, sugar, and creamer were modeled with a pedestal foot. Handles were made with a curvy, segmented look and the finials were ornamental.

Beverly was introduced in 1936. All of the flatware - plates, platters, bowls, as well as the teacup, come from Delphian. The new hollowware for Beverly consisted of the sugar, creamer, gravy, casserole, covered butter, and teapot. Finials were closed tab handles. Handles were simplified and given flat tops. The sugar, creamer, gravy, and casserole were given four small supporting feet, but the teapot had a flat, round base.

Delphian was made for about two or three years. On the other hand, Beverly was made until the mid-1940s.
