WHAT IS EMBLEM WARE CHINA?

By: John Hogan

This Souvenir China was produced as Patriotic China that was made for export to Canada during the Mid Thirties to the Mid Sixties. Many times this china is referred to by the factories of production as Emblem Ware.

Such an occurrence on bone china, porcelain and pottery was deemed by the American, British and other European potters as a means of boasting and boosting their patriotic spirit to the rest of the world as a means of taking pride in their political leaders, public buildings and cities. What a better way to expose their pride than to transfer this onto affordable tourist shop china pieces such that travelers could pick up a little piece as they were homeward bound.
