These are the sad bankruptcies. Businesses that make a product still as useful and amazing as they were 250 years ago. Sure, alternatives such as plastic and glass have competed. But there still is no substitute for a nice ceramic (clay) dish. You could easily state these ceramics were the culmination of thousands of years of pottery. But when you make expensive products you need people who can afford them. See ya.
