Granada by the Taylor, Smith & Taylor Co.
Granada was introduced by Taylor, Smith and Taylor in January 1968 at the 10th annual Atlantic City China & Glass Show. A write up from East Liverpool, Ohio's Evening Review mentions TS&T's contributions to the show:
TST will introduce two new dinnerware lines called, "Shades of Grandeur" and "Granada." John Gilkes, designer, said the new stylings break away from the traditional whiteware bodies that rely on pattern for color and utilize color applied to the entire surface of the ware to emphasize design.

"Shades of Grandeur" will feature one basic Spanish motif combining a choice of four distinctive colorings. The colors are called: "Mediterranean," "Pharaoh's Gold," "Sahara Sun" and "Oasis."

"Granada" will be available in five colors and patterns called "Matador," "Casa Madrid," "Casa Verde," "Mantilla" and "Flor Del Sol."

Accessories with American hardwood handles and brass finials will be combined with the dinner and serving pieces which are ovenproof and detergent proof. The new lines are designed to complement "Design 70," TST's ceramic ironware introduced at the show two years ago.

Granada plates and platters were given a wide rim. The hollowware was made with a cylindrical section on the body to allow for banded decal decorations. The shakers and teapot were picked up for the Chateau Ware line.

Granada was discontinued in the early 1970s. It is usually marked with a special Granada backstamp and pattern name.
