|Formerly (1920-1926) known as Crescent.
Crescent China (1920-1926) became the Leigh after F.A. Sebring's son Charles Leigh Sebring took over
management. He was a pioneer of ivory body dinnerware. Its noted color is an umber tone, a warm, deep ivory
hue. Gale Turnbull was the designer, Joseph Palin Thorley, technical supervisor. The line was noted for being
entirely different from any other on the market. Their art ware line included lamp bases, vases, flower bowls, and
fruit bowls, wall pockets, book ends, candlesticks, tobacco jars and ash trays. They also included breakfast sets
and bridge sets in the same umber tone. It existed from 1926-1931. After Leigh went out of business, Alliance
Manufacturing Company moved in.
|Leigh China was actually an Alliance, Ohio product. We include it here because of its proximity and the Sebring link.
The building was located on the corner of Lake Park Avenue and Mahoning Avenue in Stark County.
