Hi Robert

Many thanks for your great photos.

MCP Co. logo stands for Mount Clemens Pottery, Mount Clemens Michigan 1915-1987.

As the order of the letters is not obvious within this somewhat obscure pottery mark, other searchers may be input the following keywords: MPC Co, CPM Co, CMP Co, PMC Co, PCM Co

Founded in farm buildings in Mount Clemens, Michigan in 1915, the Mount Clemens Pottery was the result of the local Business Man's Association campaign for new industry to be brought to the locality. A committee had traveled to Ohio and Pennsylvania to learn more about pottery production.

World War I stopped the supply of English clay and threatened production. After the war a good recovery oversaw the growth of the fledgling company and in 1920 the S.S. Kresge Company, a client of the pottery, bought the company out.

Unfortunately, in 1941, the pottery became embroiled in a very long lasting industrial dispute about mechanization. This dispute lasted 6 years, eventually reaching the Supreme Court.

In 1962, Charles Doll, general manager since 1915, retired aged 80, succeeded by his son, Charles E. Doll, Jr. - serving as general manager until his own retirement in 1966. In 1965, the Kresge company sold out and the new concern became known as the Jamestown China Company. In 1983 ownership passed to Action Industries of Cheswick, Pennsylvania, but the Pottery ceased production in 1987 reporting $10m losses. At that time there were 200 employees. There was a failed management buyout in 1988 and the old plant was demolished in 1993.

Hope this helps.

Small oval platter (10" x 7")
by: Hildy

My item seems to be the same pattern around the border with the pink flowers and green leaves. there is also a fine gold line about 1" from the edge. So now I know what the MCP stands for, and the history of the Company. But I still do not know the NAME OF THE PATTERN, unless I missed something.
My small platter has the number 1033B under "made in USA". Now after learning the history, I wonder if it has anything to do with the date of production. Like maybe October 1933. I don't know about the B,
Does anybody have more information?

Found an old creamer? type jug laying among some trees on a property that used to have a turn-of-the-century lake resort...it was torn down in the late 1990’s. It has the MPC co. marking, but no number or any other marking besides. Any ideas on how I’d figure out the year it was produced? Thanks! Shortee161@hotmail.com
