Iona was a round shape first produced by Taylor, Smith & Taylor in the very early 1920s. The shapes were clean without embossing, scalloped edges, or other decorative elements. Most of the treatments developed for Iona were simple "ribbon" style decals that were applied to the rims of flatware and mid-body on the hollowware.

Iona was given its own backstamp with date code with the last two digits signifying the year. Shown to the right is an example from 1921. Iona was discontinued by the early 1930s.
