Lou Hoenig of California is one of over 1,000 California potteries that were in business from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, with the greatest concentration of companies being in Los Angeles.  These companies produced ceramic tableware, kitchenware, giftware, and art ware.  Their heyday came around World War II since imports from Europe and Asia were no longer coming into the US.   By the 1950’s, with increased trade agreements with European and Asian countries, competition grew fast and the US potteries could not compete with the lower priced Asian goods.  Only a very few California potteries survived through the early 1960’s.  We found very little information specific to Hoenig of California, based on what we have found, there are two possible scenarios: 1) Hoenig of California was too small and did not stay in business very long.  2) Lou Hoenig was actually an artist working for Belmar of California (we did find some pieces marked “Belmar-Hoenig”).  3) Hoenig merged with Belmar at some point in the 1960’s (Belmar, based in Los Angeles, was only in operation from 1965 – 1967).
