The El Cerrito Historical Society presents:
Tepco – El Cerrito’s contribution to the world of Tiki and ceramics

Sunday, June 5, 2011 1:30 p.m.

This event is free to the public. Refreshments will be served

An illustrated talk by Lynn Maack and Sandi Genser-Maack, collectors of Tepco pottery.

The Technical Porcelain and China Ware Co., founded in El Cerrito in 1918 by John Pagliero, produced dinnerware in a variety of wonderful patterns, from cowboy to Tiki – and much else besides. TEPCO pieces are highly sought after today for their beauty and many are still in daily use, often in restaurants.

El Cerrito Senior Center, 6500 Stockton Avenue, behind the library, El Cerrito
For information, Dave Weinstein,

Wheelchair accessible. No need to RSVP!

I had a good time at the presentation today - those TEPCO collectors are no joke!

Here's some pics:

It was standing-room only - at least 100 people:


The main presenter was a savvy collector - this is not her


They had a cool (small) display with a good proportion of tiki stuff. Definitely a couple of these I haven't seen before:


















It sure makes me want to finally go visit TEPCO beach at Point Isabel, which is just a few minutes from my house. This is where the factory dumped their error, or otherwise unusable stock from over 50 years ago!







Enjoy,
