The Homer Laughlin China Company began as a two-kiln pottery along the banks of the Ohio River in East Liverpool, Ohio. Ground was broke for the new pottery in the fall of 1873 and the first ware was produced in October 1874 under the name of Ohio Valley Pottery Company. Homer and his brother Shakespeare were the original owners, but Shakespeare withdrew in 1877. The pottery continued under the name of Ohio Valley Pottery, Homer Laughlin, proprietor until 1896 when the pottery was incorporated under the name of The Homer Laughlin China Company.

In 1905 the pottery began to move their operations across the Ohio River to the newly established town of Newell, West Virginia where it is still producing pottery under the leadership of the Aaron and Wells families.

  • Some of the patterns made by the HLC were distributed by Cunningham & Pickett, Lifetime China, Century Service, Household Institute, Vogue and other distributors. Sometimes you will see a double stamp on the backside of your china where a distributor overstamped the HLC stamp. Other times you may see one or the other, and sometimes none at all.
