By 1890, they were turning out a "vitrified" china that was white, thin, translucent, and stronger than any European porcelain. In 1893, with a new stamp,"Syracuse China" was introduced and awarded a medal at the World Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois. In 1896, the company unveiled its "rolled edge" china which became a standard in the commercial food industry.
