New York

[1] : New York Merchandise Co., Inc.

The New York Merchandise Co., Inc. was a company which imported and distributed ready-made items from various unnamed manufacturers located in Japan. They specialized on relatively cheap tableware, miniature tea sets and figures, re-selling them under their WALES CHINA brand. As far as I could find out, the company existed through the 1960s and closed around 1970. They never claimed the rights on first renewal of the marks, hence the registrations were later automatically removed from the USPTO registry.

'Wales China' stickers are sometimes found on items marked either with a printed or inmold (raised) crossed swords mark plus the printed addition 'Bone China Lace'. Like all other items that carry a 'Wales China' sticker, they of course represent items created *for* the 'New York Merchandise Co., Inc.' by another company. I have listed some mark examples in the unidentified company section under the handle 'Bone China Lace'.
