Notes About Potteries Here an There


Thru a deal completed at East Liverpool, Ohio, the former plant of the General Porcelain Co. has been taken over on a long term lease by the Bisque Novelty Co., which concern has been operating for the last six months on a limited scale in the former plant of the G. F. Brunt Porcelain Co. As soon as alterations are made, the company will start work in its enlarged quarters, and will likely employ several hundred people, manufacturing bisque doll heads.

The Virginia Potteries Co. has sold its plant at New Lexington, Ohio, and its site for a new plant east of Guyandotte, a suburb of Huntington, W. Va., to J. B. Owens, of Metuchen, N. Y. The purchaser will at once enlarge the New Lexington plant to the extent of $20,000 and also erect a new plant upon the site acquired at Guyandotte. The first unit of the new plant will be building 160 by 500 feet.
