Tussie Mussie Like most of the Blue Ridge Vitreous fine porcelain or china, this pretty pattern was introduced in the mid 1940s. Its simple design of mums and violets makes it a pretty pattern to use with many dinnerware sets. The pretty blue border adds a touch of class. This pattern can be found on other Blue Ridge serving pieces in the fine china category.


Southern Potteries Incorporated was established in Erwin Tennessee on April 8th, 1920.

After a few years of moderately successful production the company was purchased from E.J. and Ted Owens by Charles W. Foreman who hired George F. Brandt as the Southern Potteries plant manager.

Under Mr. Forman’s capable hands the company was revolutionized and the technique of hand painting under the glaze was incorporated into their dinnerware lines. Local girls and women were trained to hand paint the colorful pottery and by 1938 Southern Potteries had established ornately hand painted dinnerware lines.

The success of the industry was partly due to World War II because all imports were cut off and the demand for reasonable pretty dinnerware patterns produced in the United States increased. From 1940 until the early 1950s the company thrived.

The Southern Potteries Company continued to produce pottery into the late 1950s. In 1957 due to declining popularity of hand decorated pottery the plant stockholders voted to close the plant.

Many of the Southern Pottery molds were sold to Ray and Pauline Cash (Owners of the Clinchfield Artware Pottery Company). The Clinchfield Artware Pottery Company is still in business today, and many of the older Southern Pottery molds are still being used.
