Edwin M. Knowles went into the pottery business by taking control of the Potters Supply Company of East Liverpool, Ohio in 1890. By 1900, he started his own pottery company i Chester West Virginia called the Knowles China Company, which soon changed its name to the Edwin M. Knowles China Co.  In 1913 he expanded into Newell, WV. Both locations made Knowles dinnerware until the early 1930's when they consolidated manufacture to the Newell factory, and sold the Chester, West Virginia plant to Harker Pottery in 1931.  Edwin M. Knowles remained president of the company until his death 9 February 1943.  William A. Harris Jr. would later serve as president during much of the fifties and into the early sixties.  The Newell plant continued to make dinnerware until 1963.  The company ceased operations in late 1962 because of low profits due to competition from lower priced imports.
