Belmar of Calif - Potteries of California

While I’ve seen Belmar of California pieces rather frequently, there isn’t much information to be had about them. Chipman doesn’t list them as far as I know, and the marks encyclopedia by Lehner only gives a short paragraph telling us that the company was based somewhere in Los Angeles in the 60s, most likely on Slauson Ave (Slauson is an AWFULLY long street - however that does tell us it was south LA). Also note, there is a company called Bell of California (Bell Manufacturing & Sales Co) which should not be confused with Belmar.

Most of the items so far that I’ve seen are Chip and Dips, Covered Dishes, Ashtrays, Servers and Candy Dishes. They sometimes remind me of either Hoenig or Los Angeles Potteries. Interestingly, I received an email from a reader (Glenn) who has a set of the apple pattern plates and covered dish sets that are marked Belmar, but one of the dishes is marked as Hoenig. This makes me think that one may have bought out the other company, or Hoenig may have decided to change the name at some point.

As mentioned, they definitely have pieces that date from the 1960s - I have a feeling the range of operation for the company was somewhere from late 50s to early 70s.

The piece that I found are a pair of Fall colored serving dishes shaped like leaves. They are marked on the back as “Belmar of California USA 408″. This is pretty typical for pieces I’ve seen from them. One thing is that the font or handwriting that it is written in is in All Caps and particularly recognizable, at least to me.
