The Edwin M. Knowles China Company was started in Chester, Virginia after Mr. Knowles took control of the Potters Supply company of Ohio in 1890 after graduating from Harvard University.  Ten years later he founded Knowles China Company and was in business from 1900 to 1963. Edwin Knowles determined that his firm would manufacture only the finest semi-vitreous ware and his reputation for creating quality products became known throughout the industry.  As the company grew, they expanded and opened a second factory in Newell, West Virginia in 1913.  This became their sole location after the 1931 sale of the Chester location.  Although the company was renowned for its high quality dinnerware patterns, such as Yorktown, Potomac and Vitreous they eventually closed their doors in 1963 due to competition of lesser quality, less expensive goods.  In 1982 another company bought the rights to the Knowles name and produced collectible plates during the 1980's and 1990's.  These plates depicted beautifully hand painted scenes from movies, wildlife and artist's works.  The original Knowles plates are highly sought after by collectors and can sell for $1,000.
