Syracuse china news

From a reader via e-mail:

I think your readers who collect china and pottery would
want to know that April 6 was the last day of production for Syracuse
china ware made in the USA. Libbey, Inc. of Toledo, Ohio has closed
down the plant. You’ll still be able to buy on line, but after the 6th
thier plates will be made in their China china plant. You can get more
info on this at Please pass along to others J.C.P., via e-mail
