    Following historical excerpt from: (https://www.kville.org/kchistory/Pottery.html)
    The Abingdon Sanitary Manufacturing Company was founded in 1908 and produced vitreous china plumbing fixtures. The company introduced the first colored plumbing fixtures in 1928 and made all of the fixtures used at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1933.

    To stay in business during the Depression, the company started producing artware in 1934 made out of the same vitreous china. Between 1934 and 1950, over 6 million pieces were produced in 1,000 designs and 149 colors. Clay from Georgia and England, feldspar from South Dakota and ground silica from Illinois were used.

    Over 80 percent of the pieces were sprayed, 95 percent made in glossy glaze and in 1941, hand decorating the pieces began. Over 95 percent of the pottery is marked with a mold number and ABINGDON USA. The artware was sold nationwide in fine department stores including Marshall Fields, Gimbals and Wanamakers.

    An increase in the demand for plumbing fixtures caused the company to stop producing the artware in 1950. The company is still in business today, part of Briggs Industries, Inc.
