The company was founded by Amanda Smith, a homemaker from Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Her son Robert P. started selling slices of Amanda’s own deep-dish, fruit-filled pies door-to-door, and at the local YMCA lunch counter. Later he added a mobile route and a small store. The demand for her pies led to the formation of the company “Mrs. Smith’s Delicious Home Made Pies, Inc.” in 1925. There were four Mrs. Smith’s Pies bakeries serving the Northeast United States by 1930, including one in York, Logan and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This is a 1930’s pie plate with good ‘homely’ graphics.
