Vintage Cameron Blue Tulip Service Set
Taken from article by Rex Butler, Antique Trader.
I have “discovered” Cameron Clay Products. I know exactly how Pamela
Coates felt when she wrote, “I feel it is now McCoy’s turn to take its
rightful place in the world of antiques,” when she “discovered” McCoy
pottery. In her book, “The Real McCoy,” she even lists The Antique Trader as
the first trade publication to list McCoy as American art pottery.
The feeling I have is not about McCoy, though, but rather an unknown pottery
in West Virginia.
Cameron Clay Products was founded in Cameron, West Virginia, in 1936 and
destroyed by fire in 1964. In its 28 years of operation, the firm produced some
amazing art pottery. Often their pieces are confused with Hull, Shawnee or
McCoy. The “Tulip Ware” long-associated with Cronin Pottery of Minerva,
Ohio, has been proven to be manufactured by Cameron Clay Products.
