Description

Wonderful set of 6 Soup Bowls from The Salem China Company in the Red Transfer Heirloom Pattern featuring a lovely gadrooned rope embossed rim and English Countryside Scene. The soup plates measure 8" in diameter by 1.6" tall. All are free of any chips, cracks, or utensil markings. They all have heavy crazing that only adds to their charm. Visit MissHattiesChina and MagnoliaRestorations for many other treasures from around the globe.

The Salem China Company was located in Salem, Ohio in Columbian County, northwest of East Liverpool.
It was founded by Patrick and John McNicol, Daniel Cronin, and William Smith in 1898 with production beginning a year later. (It should be noted some sources claim it was Thomas McNicol who partnered with Smith and Cronin.) In 1918, the pottery was purchased by F. A. Sebring and Floyd W. McKee was put in charge until he retired in 1950. Charles F. Fox served as assistant secretary and treasurer, and J. A. Armstrong was sales manager for many years.

By 1930, the pottery was firing 25,000 pieces per day and at the height of production employed over 500 people.

Salem China stopped manufacturing wares in 1967 and was reorganized into a sales and service company.

Many of the distinctive shapes from the 1930s and 1940s were created by designer Vicktor Schreckengost.
