Pottery News

The Barberton Pottery Co., which has just erected a new pottery at Barberton, O., has recently completed 20 new dwellings, which will be rented to the employes.

It is probably that nothing will be done now regarding the new pottery which was to have been erected at Columbus, O., by the Bell Pottery Co., of Findlay, O., since the death of Mr. W. M. Bell. Mr. Bell was at the head of the new concern, and it is doubtful whether Mr. Bell's brother, Mr. Edward Bell, and the others interested in the formation of the new company, will carry the movement through or not.

The Electric Porcelain Co., of East End, East Liverpool, O., and which has been in existence something short of a year, is making a wonderful success with the sale of its goods. At the outset the plant had but one kiln, which was devoted entirely to the manufacture of wiring tubes. However, later on, one more kiln was erected and later a third kiln. The company will begin at once the manufacture of dry pressed goods such as insulators, cleats, rosettes and all kinds of special electrical porcelain.
