Salem China Company, 1898 to present. Early production was just white granite ware, followed by fine earthenware and kitchen items and finally a maker of fine dinnerware. Dinnerware production ceased in 1967. We sell vintage china and other collectibles so it should be considered "used" unless stated otherwise. We strive to described all items accurately but if you have any questions, please feel free to email us. Our customers are never charged a handling fee - just the exact shipping amount. Shipping within the US is via USPS insured Priority Mail and will be calculated after the sale upon receipt of your address. If are outside of the US we suggest that you inquire about the shipping costs.
