Texas Ware

Texas Ware, also known as confetti, Dallas, speckle or splatterware, was made by the Plastics Manufacturing Company from the 1950s to the 1990s.  The bowls were made of melamine, or melmac,  mixed with bits and pieces of leftover melamine from other jobs to create the multicolored confetti look.
