Crooksville China Co. 1902 - 1959 The process of making pottery remained little changed from ancient times until the late nineteenth century, when new materials and techniques came into widespread use. The English manufacturing process crossed the Atlantic and found a home in the eastern United States, most notably in southeastern Ohio, which became known as the pottery capital of America. In operation there from 1902 to 1959, the Crookesville China Company produced chinaware still valued by collectors. Crooksville China Co. made semi-porcelain dinnerware & kitchenware. The company began having financial difficulties in the late 1950s, due to competition from Japanese imports and plastic dinnerware manufacturers, and closed its doors in 1959.

Southeastern Ohio was known as the pottery capital of the world in the early 1900s. Crooksville is also home of Hull pottery, one of the best known Ohio potteries.
