The Prince Edward Island Pottery Company - 1980's

A short-lived pottery factory (ceramic production using moulds) was established on PEI in the 1980's which operated in the West Royalty Industrial Park and had a wide line of items initially including a major crock-pot liner contract. The company didn't survive financially.  I have not come across any of their production items or images of their work. 

The name the West Royalty company operated under was the same name as the historic one from the 1880's - the Prince Edward Island Pottery. They may have also used tradenames to distinguish their more commercial work from the items aimed at the tourist trade. 

Any additional information that anyone has regarding this commercial ceramic production would be appreciated.
