In 1916, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of East Tennessee, Southern Potteries opened its doors. The unique, hand-painted china was used by families around the world. Although the old Southern Potteries is no more, many of the original molds and designs live on in The Southern BlueRidge Company® and PiggyBank Express®.
Today, The Southern BlueRidge Company holds the trademark for BlueRidge China and still manufactures many of the original designs directly from Southern Potteries original molds. Although the Southern Potteries is no more, the forgotten art of hand painted china lives on in The Southern BlueRidge Company®, Inc. and in PiggyBank Express ®, makers of fine, handmade piggy banks.
