Why do I find different patterns of dinnerware in the tan-fleck glaze?

This is called ‘After the Strike’ dinnerware/art ware. They are the tan-fleck or solid-orange items, regardless of pattern or shape that were ‘sprayed’ as a result of the provisions of the liquidation court order.  The court allowed completion of ‘in-process wares’ as a stipulation of the liquidation of the potteries, and became part of the property of Gilmer’s post-Potteries corporation.  This was done by ‘a few’ of the Union employees for a few weeks in the Fall/Winter of 1967 as they could not support bringing back enough employees to hand-paint the remaining bisque-ware of each pattern.
