Sugar and Creamer, Scio Pottery, Blue Onion, Blue and White, Discontinued
A wonderful sugar and creamer by Scio Pottery. The pattern is Blue Onion, originally named Bulb pattern, which is whiteware decorated with cobalt blue or pink designs of a vine with buds that look like onions. The bulbs on the onion pattern were actually peaches or pomegranates copied from the original Chinese model and the pattern name was Blue Bulbs, but the collectors called them onions and the name stuck. This set would look great on a sideboard, buffet, or table. A great addition to your kitchen or dining room decor. A great gift idea.
The Scio Pottery Company was founded in 1932. The plant had been built in Scio, Ohio in 1920 as an additional production plant by Albright of Carrollton, Ohio. The Albright operation was closed in 1927. Lew Reese visited Scio in 1932 and looked over the abandoned plant. The property was purchased by Reese at a sheriff's sale for $8,000 on a time payment plan. He immediately started repairs on the plant, living in a corner of the plant. By February 1933 the Scio-Ohio Pottery Company was short of funds for payroll, raw materials and orders. The story goes that a clay salesman got his company to advance the company clay and Reese himself went to Chicago and persuaded a large firm to take the first carload of cups. When the first payroll fell due, Lew Reese had a cash balance of only 11 cents. Twenty townspeople put up $100 apiece and Scio began a history that spanned nearly a half-century.
