As for the history of Fraunfelter China Company, it was founded in 1915 by Charles David Fraunfelter in Zanesville, Ohio, America’s pottery capital at that time, and his company soon counted among the most successful in the nation. His son George Emerson Fraunfelter followed in his father’s footsteps and for four years managed a new plant in Chesterton, Indiana.
