This 1940s ad shows flatware and teacups from Royal's Oxford shape, but the sugar and creamer are different. It's the sugar and creamer sets along with similar hollowware that's not been identified.

The two ads above have the same sugar and creamer from the 1940s ad, but this time, the cup's body matches the shape of the sugar and creamer. Shown are "Dutch Mill" and "Rosepoint" from a 1950s Montgomery Wards catalog. Royal China used a red(pink) version of the windmill on their Regent shape.

The following three pages come from a 1964 Red Owl grocery store premiums catalog. They feature the "Blue Heaven" line of dinnerware made by the Royal China Company of Sebring, Ohio. Multiple coupons were included in the catalog that could be redeemed for free small individual pieces for specified weeks throughout the year or for discounted prices on larger items and place settings.

Red Owl stores were primarily in the upper midwest region. At one the time of the "Blue Heaven" promotion, there were locations in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming.
