Ca.1910's Mayer China Restaurant Ware Pottery Co. Of Beaver Falls, Pa Info Book:
For offer is an original circa 1915-1920 MAYER CHINA COMPANY information booklet, not really a catalog, titled, “The Heritage of a Century, Mayer China.” It tells the story, with photographs, of the famous restaurant ware manufacturing company located at Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania which was founded in 1881 by Ernest and Joseph Mayer. This booklet has 16 unnumbered pages inside the brown covers and blank brown pages within. The booklet is a history of the company with information about the makers of restaurant plates, coffee cups and other food / serving pottery pieces. Mayer China was a famous manufacturer of restaurant service for decades in the United States. The booklet has writing on the first several pages. An early owner of the book decided to write history of pottery inside the pages, including over the printed words of the first few pages of the book. Luckily, the writing doesn’t affect too much of the text. In addition to the written words, there are four photographs pasted onto the pages. Three of the photos show workers and artisans working in the factory, while the last photo shows the factory building as it looked about 100 years ago. This booklet is very rare but in decent condition. In addition to the writing, it has some minor creases and dog-earred pages but no major problems. You can see a PDF file of the entire booklet online if you search the title and “restaurant ware collectors.” Please let me know if you have any questions whatsoever. I will ship the item for $3.50 DOMESTIC California residents pay 8.75 percent sales tax on items shipped within California unless you have a resale license. Please inquire for foreign shipping costs; I’ll be happy to provide them... Thanks for looking and happy offerding.
