The National China Company began in East Liverpool, Ohio in 1899. In 1910, the firm sold its East Liverpool facilities to the Harker Pottery Company, and purchased the Dresden China Company in Salineville, Ohio. National China operated successfully in Salineville for over 15 years, manufacturing dinner, toilet and hotel wares. In the late 1920s and early 1930s there was a rapid decline in the American pottery industry. Many companies joined together in an attempt to revitalize the industry. In 1929, National China became one of eight firms to consolidate and form the American Chinaware Corporation. The merger included other potteries such as Knowles, Taylor & Knowles, the Carrollton China Company, and the Pope Gosser China Company. American Chinaware Corporation filed for bankruptcy after only a few years and on November 15, 1932, the company ceased operations. The backstamp dates this set to before its merger with the other companies mentioned earlier. This set is approximately 100 years old.
