Initially operating as "Valley Vista Pottery" in a small manufacturing plant in Los Angeles until about 1949. The name "Maddux of California" was used after this facility was sold. Works produced were art ware, giftware, cookie jars, flowers & figurines. The "Maddux of California" name survived under several owners until 1980. By this time most of the manufacturing was farmed out to other potteries As a result there are a wide variety of "Maddux" pieces. "Maddux" pieces were at one time offered as premiums by S & H Green Stamps.
