*SABIN...founded by Samuel Sabin in 1946, did not manufacture china, but it decorated “blanks” (i.e., undecorated pieces of china) purchased from ceramics companies that made the actual pottery and porcelain. Sabin applied decoration to these blanks — often by using decals — and then resold them to a variety of wholesalers or retailers. It is reported that Sabin also decorated glass. Some of Sabin’s biggest customers were premium companies that provided trading stamps to retailers that offered them to shoppers as an incentive to buy and spend more money in their places of business. The customers would paste these stamps into a book and, when enough books were filled, would take them into the premium company and redeem them for desired merchandise. In the mid-1960s, Sabin Industries was bought by Chase Enterprises, which had just purchased Mount Clemens Pottery in Mount Clemens, Mich. When the Sabin Industries building burned in 1979, the entire operation moved to Mount Clemens. Not sure if they are still in business.
