This was made by the Canonsburg Pottery out of Canonsburg, PA founded in 1900. The company was sold in 1975 and then closed in 1978.
Zeh, Ebeling & Reuss Co. was established by the German emigrants Theodore Ebeling and Frederick Reuss and the owner of a glassware and china business, John E. F. Zeh. The company imported porcelain, earthenware, and ironstone from several European countries. When Zeh left the company in 1900; it was renamed Ebeling & Reuss Co. and moved to Devon, Pennsylvania. The company's import volume peaked in the late 1940's/50's and with the company remaining in the Ebeling and Reuss families.
The company imported products from Alboth & Kaiser (Germany) Furstenberg, Goebel, Heinrich & Co. and Carl Schumann Arzberg.
The 1980’s was the beginning of the end for many distributors and glass makers in America. Ronald Rapelje purchased the assets the same year and moved Ebeling & Reuss to Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company was eventually sold to the Strathmore Corporation of Pennsylvania in April 2002.

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in excellent condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.
When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.

Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.
Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.
Thanks for dropping by.
