Pottery News.

Reports from Findlay and Columbus, O., say that a deal has been closed by The Bell Pottery Co., of Findlay, for the purchase of a tract of land upon which a branch of that company's plant will be erected in the near future. The company has been making a strictly high grade vitreous porcelain at its old works in Findlay and it is thought that the new plant will be devoted to the manufacture of the same class of goods. It is probable, also, that a part of the plant will be devoted to the manufacture of electrical porcelain.

The Electric Porcelain Co., of East Liverpool, O., is building an additional kiln and it is stated on good authority that it will add at once a building in which machinery will be installed for the production of dry pressed goods such as cleats, insulators, rosettes and specialties. Up to the present time the company has operated in wiring tubes only.

The new plant of the Trenton Porcelain Co. has commenced operations in the slip-house and clay-shops and it is probable that the clay-workers will begin operations within the next few days.
