Boonton New Jersey: Not Just Known for Iron Anymore

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what about a picture with words?

Optional styling on the early coffee-tea cups are hard to find. So are the non-swoopy cereal bowls, this lot available at RetroChalet.

I really think the best thing that came out of Boonton, New Jersey, was the melmac.  I remember driving there thinking I was going to some giant large industrial city, on a search to find the old Boontonware factory plant, and sights unseen. Before you knew it, I had drove right through the tiny town and clear on out to the other side.  If you blink, you may just, miss it.  Imagine all those dishes.......coming out of that tiny town.  Check out my other posts on Boontonware here.
