Porcelier Pottery Company

East Liverpool, Ohio must have been an exciting, vibrant pottery-making community when Porcelier joined all the other companies doing business in this town located next to the Ohio River in the 1920's. So many companies, not in existence today, were making all sorts of wonderful porcelain, vitrified china and ceramic items.

The actual date of business for Porcelier start-up is unknown, but previously published as 1927. Hall and Homer Laughlin are still in the area, but Porcelier moved its company to South Greensburg, PA when it purchased the vacant American China Company plant in 1930. Porcelier graced the American home with its wonderful line of lighting fixtures, kitchen and fine dining items over the next two decades well into the '50's when the company was dissolved and sold the building and seven acres of land to the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Industries in 1954. Sadly, the building is no longer there having been torn down to make way for "progress".

Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer this pristine condition, Porcelier lidded vitrified, yellow ware Tea Pot and lid.

The Porcelier Vitrified Yellow Ware Ribbed Tea Pot has a vitrified, yellow ware body. There is a raised vertical ribbing at the base which leads your eye up to the deep brown scroll design which is flanked on either side by a raised braided cord design. This design is on both sides of he tea pot. There is a single brown pin striping at the top, which coordinates with the two on the lid.

The Porcelier Vitrified Yellow Ware Ribbed Tea Pot stands 5-1/2 inches in height without the lid in place, 7 inches with the lid in place. It measures 8-1/2 inches from handle to spout. The upper diameter measure is 4-3/4 inches while the base measures 4-3/8 inches in diameter.

The Porcelier Vitrified Yellow Ware Ribbed Tea Pot and its' lid are in pristine condition with no crazing, flea bites, dimples or other defects noted. This antique Porcelier Vitrified Yellow Ware Ribbed Tea Pot has been very lovingly cared for over the years and it shows virtually no signs of wear or use

Vitrification is the process of melting that clays and glazes go through as they are fired to maturity. In a fully matured clay body, the spaces between refractory particles are completely filled up with glass, fusing the particles together and making the clay body impervious to water.

The underside is marked in blue with; "Porcelier Vitrified China" and in brown with "19-79".
