Making Wide Variety of Pottery


Claiming that what will be one of California's largest industries has been started, the Standard Pottery Co., Los Angeles, recently commenced operations manufacturing hotel chinaware, porcelain table, bath, lavatory and toilet wares. Riverside county native clays and Nevada china clays will be used and newly invented machinery for refining clays is being installed. Arrangements are also under way to add a series of high grade porcelain and enamel insulating devices for electrical installations, for which there is a large Western market, and which now must all be shipped in from Eastern points. Present operations make the first actual commercial production of table chinaware on the Pacific coast.
