Stetson China Company began as a decorating and distributing firm in 1919. It was a family business, and they were located in Chicago, Ill. In 1946, Joseph Stetson purchased the Illinois China Company that was located in Lincoln, Ill., and the name became Stetson China Company. Rather than using decals, they outlined designs and then finished it by hand painting. Many of their wares were sold in department stores, and some were made as premiums for the Procter and Gamble Co. They also made earthenware that was decorated with decals and used as premiums for grocery stores. They closed in 1966. --Anne McCollam, The Oklahoman 2014
