I was rummaging through the shelves at GW and I found this stuck in the back. I looked at the bottom and saw the Royal Copely mark but then I saw the price tag...20.00 !! This belongs in their showcase not on the shelf I thought. So I started to walk to the front to give it to John and tell him it needed to be in the case for that price since it was perfect. Then I noticed the color of the sticker. It was GREEN ! which meant it was only a dollar ! I did want it but not for 20 or even 10 which it would have been if it were yellow, but a dollar... Oh heck yeah !...lol -Mike-
Spaulding Royal Copley History courtesy of the book:
"Royal Copley Plus Windsor and Spaulding" by Leslie C. and Majorie A. Wolf
The Spaulding China Company was established in an area already famous for pottery manufacturing, Sebring, Ohio. The company began production in 1942. It was first located in a garage on East Ohio Avenue.
The Spaulding China Company made lines called Royal Copley, Royal Windsor, and they also sold fine quality products under their Spaulding name. They sold assortments of birds, vases, figurines, and wall pockets and named the assortments with fancy names like Regal Assortment, Essex Assortment, Lennox Assortment, Crown Assortment and so on. Department stores loved this marketing tool and bought and sold thousands of these assortments. The Spaulding Company used the slogan "Gift Shop Merchandise at Chain Store Prices".
