Del Coronado Stoneware, Made In California

After Katrina I salvaged a full set of a great-aunt's dishes. They're stoneware in four pastel colors with grapes embossed on the rims and marked "Del Coronado - Made in California." I know that her daughter sent the set to her not long after WWII.

I've found very little information about them on the internet - most everything seems to point to Nasco or the Hotel del Coronado. I'd love to know anything further about them.

And now the battery on my camera is dead I'll put up some pictures later.

The DEC2, 3, 4 & 7 are the same. One stated "discontinued 1949." I had found a website 4-5 years ago that had a very brief history of Del Coronado; it mentioned that after initial production ended, either another company made this pattern for a few years in the fifties or the same company sold it under a different name. Can't remember and lost that bookmark in a crash.
