POPE GOSSER CHINA

The Pope-Gosser company was organized in Coshocton, Ohio in 1902 by Charles F. Gosser and Bentley Pope. In the beginning it experimented with high quality decorative pieces. Later on the concentration was on dinnerware. The company closed in 1958. Pope was a skillful decorator who was born in England. He came to America in 1870 and worked at Trenton until 1891, when he moved to Ohio. At that time he become manager of KTK until 1903, when he left to form the Pope-Gosser China Company with Gosser. The wares were "excellently potted" and the shapes were a departure from existing models. The company begin to immediately produce high grade translucent china for vases, etc. Not finding the profit in this line, the company switched to dinnerware which was harder than the usual dinnerware of the times. Pope-Gosser joined the ill-fated American China Company in 1929. After the demise of that company, Pope-Gosser was re-organized in 1932 by Frank Judge. The company continued to make semiporcelain wares until 1958, although the quality of these wares was not up to the standards of the old company. Pope-Gosser made two noteworthy dinnerware shapes: Louvre (which was another attempt by American potters to imitate the works of Haviland of France) and Edgemore. Of these two, the Edgemore shape has shown up quite often in Antique shops. Perhaps this is due to its rather unusual appearance, which makes it easy to spot even when it is mingled in with other shapes by other potters. If you have not yet encountered Pope-Gosserīs Edgemore dinnerware, do not hestitate to pick up and examine it next time you find it. Note the workmanship and the feeling of delicacy that made it stand out from the wares of other potters of the same time and region.
