LARKIN CO.

Circa 1910
Larkin Co. Sugar Bowl with Lid circa 1910 (1903 - S.093). Buffalo Pottery was formed in 1901, in Buffalo, NY, and started production of semi-vitreous ware in 1903. Semi-vitreous is a form of porcelain china. This identifying mark "Semi-vitreous, Buffalo Pottery" with the illustration of the Buffalo is undated, but we have identified identical marks which are dated 1907 through 1917 to date. According to Jack Quinan, Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs for the Larkin Administration building were completed in 1904. The finished building was ready for occupancy in August 1906 "Myth and Fact", 1989, p. xiii. The first form of the Larkin "LCO" monogram that we were able to locate appeared on the July 1905 cover of "The Larkin Idea". Although it did not appear on the cover of the January 1907 "The Larkin Idea", it appeared in a slightly different form on pages 26-27, suggesting the use of the "Larkin monogram" as part of a table centerpiece for the Larkin Club of Ten. This newer design for the monogram appeared on the cover of the July 1907 issue and the design for the cover stayed consistent through at least the February 1908 issue. Photographically the first appearance of the monogram, that we could locate, was published in the March 1908 Architectural Record. Located at the information bureau in the building’s entrance, the monogram is designed... Continue... 0094.39.0214
1916
Larkin Co. Demitasse Cup & Two Saucers (1903 - S.093). Ground was broken in the Spring of 1902 for the Buffalo Pottery Company, a subsidiary of the Larkin Company. The plant went into full production in the fall of 1903. Original intended to provide premiums for the Larkin catalog, it soon became one of the finest potteries in the country. The name was changed to Buffalo China Inc., and was purchased by Oneida in 1983. (Larkin p199) The Larkin Restaurant was located on the top floor of the Administration Building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. In 1912, 45,000 visitors of the Larkin Factories enjoyed "wholesome and dainty refreshments" (Larkin Idea, p5). This saucer was most likely used in the Larkin Restaurant, not as a give-away premium. There is no evidence that Wright designed the "LCo" logo, although the other design elements on the saucer were taken from design elements of the Wright designed Administration Building. An earlier form of the logo appeared as early as 1905. The logo that appeared on the cup and saucer appeared on the cover of the July 1907 "Larkin Idea". The cup measures 2.5 inches across the top and 2.25 inches high. The saucer measures 5" in diameter. "Buffalo China, 1916." 0132.14.0712 0132.15.1212

There is no evidence that Wright designed the "LCo" logo, although the other design elements on the saucer were taken from design elements of the Wright designed Administration Building. An earlier form of the logo appeared as early as 1905. The logo that appears on the plate appeared on the cover of the July 1907 "Larkin Idea". The salad plate measures 8.4" in diameter. Imprinted on the bottom: "Buffalo China, 1916." 0132.20.0114
1916
Larkin Company Serving Platter 1916. Frank Lloyd Wright began designing the Larking Administration Building in 1903, and completed the design in 1904. The finished building was ready for occupancy in August 1906. The Larkin Restaurant was located on the top floor of the Administration Building. In 1912, 45,000 visitors of the Larkin Factories enjoyed "wholesome and dainty refreshments" (Larkin Idea, p5). Ground was broken in the Spring of 1902 for the Buffalo Pottery Company, a subsidiary of the Larkin Company. The plant went into full production in the fall of 1903. Original intended to provide premiums for the Larkin catalog, it soon became one of the finest potteries in the country. The name was changed to Buffalo China Inc., and was purchased by Oneida in 1983 (Larkin p199). This serving platter was used in the restaurant and includes the stylized "LCo" monogram in the design. This example of the monogram was published in the January 1907 The Larkin Idea. The other design elements on the platter were taken from design elements of the Wright designed Administration Building. Imprinted on the bottom: "Buffalo China, 1916." 11.5" x 8" x 1.1" deep. 0136.07.0419
1928
Larkin Co. Dessert Plate (1903 - S.093). Rouge and ivory dessert plate with black line and Larkin logo. Ground was broken in the Spring of 1902 for the Buffalo Pottery Company, a subsidiary of the Larkin Company. The plant went into full production in the fall of 1903. Original intended to provide premiums for the Larkin catalog, it soon became one of the finest potteries in the country. The name was changed to Buffalo China Inc. By 1928 Buffalo China developed white plus five solid colors: Ye Old Ivory (ivory); Lune Ware (medium to light blue); Rouge Ware (pink); Colorido Ware (yellow); and Cafe-au-Lait (deep tan). Combinations with an ivory center: Colorido Lamelle (yellow and ivory); Lune Lamelle (medium blue and ivory) and Rouge Lamelle (pink and ivory). Rouge Ware was the name given by Buffalo Pottery to pink solid-body vitreous ware. Vitrified China was a strong high-grade ceramic ware fired at a high temperature to a glasslike finish. It had a low water-absorption rate. We identified Rouge Ware markings undated, 1928 and 1930. In 1932, Buffalo Pottery was granted US Patent 1849272. The Larkin Restaurant was located on the top floor of the Administration Building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. In 1912, 45,000 visitors of the Larkin Factories enjoyed "wholesome and dainty refreshments" (Larkin Idea, p5). This plate... Continue... 0215.12.0314
