    Anyone want to play some trivia? Trivia #1

    What drives me on collecting? One of the main things are the facts. Where was it made? What company? Who made it? I want to know everything about what I collect. That's why I like ancient coins so much. You can ID the Emperor, or Empress, mint city, propaganda, message? and so much information.

    Trivia games can be fun. Want to play?

    This has to do with pottery.
    Pottery collectors will find this somewhat easy.

    Name the item and its' color, maker and who created this line.
    1. The person who is credited with this line has a history of potters in his family from Europe and at one time was employeed at a tuberculosis sanatorium in California. Also worked in Ohio.
    One of his vases broke the record for price in American Art Pottery at Rago auctions in 2007.
    2. This item was discontiued during war years when the government confiscated a certain ingrediant that is known world wide as #92
    3. This pottery company is one, if not the largest, in the world today.
