The first thing to know about the H.F. Coors company of California is that they are completely unrelated to the Coors Porcelain company of Golden, Colorado. It makes it even more confusing that both companies are still in business today. Luckily, most items are marked - the latter with Colorado and the former with “Inglewood, California” which is where the pottery began in 1925.

Potteries of California

Herman F. Coors and his wife started the business making harder glazed porcelain china (I believe much of it was vitrified). I have seen both utilitarian items (tiles, bathroom fixtures) and commercial dinnerware. The company continued at its location until at least the late 70s, in 2003 its assets were acquired by the Catalina China, Inc. and continues to this day. They’re a full service commercial tableware manufacturer, currently making items for the food service industry and hotels. The material they use is known as ALOX┬« High Strength China. You may also see the word “Alox” as the stamp on some of their wares.

I’ve come across a number of their items several times, but haven’t really picked them up because they weren’t as “exciting” as some of the other California manufacturers and because I believed them to be newer pieces. Almost all the items I see are solid color, heavy duty dinnerware pieces although there are other pieces (mostly older ones) that have simple floral or other patterns on them. A popular cookingware line is labeled “Chefsware” and made for hotels. Another marking you may come across which is from the HF Coors company is “Coorsite”.
