Sterling China Company
First opened under the name Sterling China, then quickly changed to both the Sebring China Company and
Limoges China as the Sterling name was very similar to the Sterling China Company already in operation
in East Liverpool and Wellsville.  The difference can be told by the backstamp, and that Sterling of East
Liverpool only made hotel ware.
Frank A. Sebring opened Sterling China, under the advice of Sweeney
and Smith, to make thin china.  Little saleable ware was produced and quickly converted to ware he
knew best.  Fred took over.  When the Haviland interests in Limoges, France took the matter into the
courts, the use of 'American Limoges' was used.
