Southern Potteries was incorporated in 1920. By 1938, the Blue Ridge line was developed which involved full hand painting under glaze. Local women and girls were trained in free hand painting. By the early 1950's the import of hard plastic dinnerware and growing competition from other potteries cut into the market for Blue Ridge. In 1957, Southern Potteries closed its doors.
