Cordelia China Company

I was only able to find information about this company in my “Lehner’s Encyclopedia of US Markings on Pottery, Porcelain, and Clay” book by Lois Lehner.

The book states that Cordelia China Company was based in Dalton, OH and operated from 1944 to 1952.

A Mr. Ed Hazel, who became a designer for Shawnee Pottery (see separate page) in 1944, helped organize the Cordelia China Company.

The company made high quality decorative china, such as vases, console sets, figurines, miniatures, florist-ware, and salt and pepper shakers.

Various outlets were in Ohio, Virginia, Kansas, and Kentucky.

All items were hand decorated, and the coloring was a part of the clay mixture, which accounts for the deep blue colors on my burro figurine.
