Patterns

These pages are my attempt to categorize as many of the Carr patterns as possible, and it will be an ongoing project as time allows and more pieces emerge. Using the backstamps on patterns themselves, two catalogs and photos shared by the kindness of friends and online sellers, we've put together two sections of underglaze print patterns and one section of topmarked china.

In addition, there is a section that details the West Virginia State Museum Collection from the estate of Joy Bachman, wife of Carr China’s last president.

There is also the section on the Mattson Collection, which includes photographs taken by Bill Montgomery of Judy Reed’s collection of her father's designs from the time he worked for Carr China. Mr. Mattson was a very talented artist, and I think you will be impressed with his work.

The Pattern Index is an easy way to find patterns by name or number, and it provides a quick alphabetical listing of topmarks.

Curiosities is the home for pieces that don’t quite fit in other sections or that ask questions for which we currently have no answers.

Just added is a list of Distributors, for which we owe in large part to the tireless efforts of historian Larry Paul.

Eventually there will be sections added on Lines and Shapes, but for now you will have to be satisfied with the other pattern sections mentioned above.

If you have any photos you’d like to share, I’d be very grateful if you’d let me know.  E-mail ed@carrchinacompany.com.
