If you are interested in additional selections of the Blue Ridge Southern Pottery plates, please message me for a discount.
In 1916, the Clinchfield, Carolina, and Ohio Railroad decided to create a pottery as a means of promoting industrial development along its railway. The tiny east Tennessee town of Erwin was selected as the site for the new "Clinchfield Pottery" in part due to the availability of raw materials including white Kaolin clay and Feldspar.
The name "Blue Ridge" first appeared on S.P.I. products sometime in 1932 or 1933. In 1938 (the hand painted era) Southern Potteries' owner, Charles W. Foreman, elevated the products produced by S.P.I. to an art form when he introduced the technique of hand painting under glaze. The earliest hand paintings consisted of accent strokes and simple designs around decals. The decals were gradually eliminated until all designs became hand painted in the early 1940's.
Prior to World War II, the pottery industry was small as the majority of our dinnerware was being imported. As a result of the war, imports were shut off and the pottery business greatly expanded. By 1951 S.P.I. was the largest hand painting pottery in the United States producing over 24 million pieces annually and employing over 1,000 people. By 1953 the end of an era was signaled as imports were booming and plastic dinnerware came onto the market. The company closed in 1957.

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.
We do offer refunds, but the item will have to be returned to us before the refund is completed. We do NOT pay for return shipping. Please, let us know if you have any issues, we will be glad to discuss them with you to determine an outcome.
We will return all messages within a 24 hour period, but we do strive to reply as quick as possible.
NOTE: Change in policy: The USPS has changed it claims requirement to having to bring in the box and broken piece to the local post office in order to file a claim on this insurance. We apologize for for this, as we know that it is not good service.
The following is the Lazy Y’s new return policy for pieces that arrive broken:
1. Please take pictures of the broken item and the box and packaging and send those to me in a message.
2. I will then file a claim for reimbursement and send you the claim number.
3. I will then ask you to take the broken piece and its packaging to your local post office for their review (remember to bring the claim number with you).
4. Notify me that this step was taken and I’ll issue a refund at that time.
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.
