Publication: Forty-First and Forty-Second Report of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce
Cincinnati, OH, United States
TRADE AND COMMERCE
CITY OF CINCINNATI.
The business in pottery, at this city, both in manufactures and trade, was fairly satisfactory in 1889-90, as well as in the preceding year. Our jobbers generally report a favorable year's work, the business of the city having been well maintained. The active competition which there is between foreign and domestic manufactures is constantly in the direction of lower values, making itself felt, however, rather in a slow shrinkage than in marked changes at any one time. Our domestic manufacturers are steadily improving the quality and styles of their wares, and are each year more energetically contesting the ground with foreign producers. Cincinnati, in addition to its production of the usual ware of commerce, is making a steady advance in the manufacture of the higher grades of pottery, which is attracting more and more attention, both at home and abroad, for its artistic value, and the growth of which is to receive further stimulation by a completely new plant, with enlarged facilities, which will afford the founders of this meritorious work still better opportunities for improving a position already conspicuous in the higher walks of pottery production. Our glass manufacturers have increased their business, notwithstanding the fact that, in some respects, the summer was unfavorable to glass sales. This industry, in this city, has steadily increased its scope and its usefulness, which may be said of the glass manufacturers generally of the country. No other department of production has made, in late years, more rapid or significant progress, especially in the better grades, the time having already come when American glassware may be found in the shops of Europe.
