The Beach & Arthur Paper Company was a paper novelty company engaged in the manufacture of napkins, tablecloths, plates and cups in a wide range of design and color during the span 1929 -1941. Beach & Arthur began producing matched sets of decorated paper tableware, the first in the United States to do so, in 1929 in Pennsylvania. The company operated a factory in Indianapolis, Indiana and one in Modena, Pennsylvania on or before September 1, 1937. The style of their fine artwork was very distinctive. The graphics were extremely well defined and symmetrically woven throughout the patterns of their designs. The disposable nature of their products, primarily associated with the food industry, combined with a brief 12 year production run makes finding high-quality examples difficult.
