LuRay Pastels dinnerware was produced from 1938 to 1961 by the Taylor, Smith, and Taylor Company of West Virginia. This line of dinnerware was named for the beautiful Luray Caverns in Virginia.
It was initially available in four pastel colours: Persian Cream, Windsor Blue, Sharon Pink, and Surf Green. A fifth colour (Chatham Gray) was added in 1947 but was discontinued in 1952 due to a lack of popularity. This has made Chatham Gray pieces a challenge for collectors to locate.
Pieces are marked with the backstamp "TS&T LuRay Pastels". Very few pieces are unmarked.
