Cal-Style

I find the products of the Torrance, California-based pottery Cal-Style all the time, particularly ashtrays, lazy susans and various types of serving dishes.  So why does no one seem to know anything about this pottery?!  Cal-Style could be tied to California Originals, but that's just conjecture based on the similarity of products and their common Torrance, CA. location.  I'm on the hunt for info.

At first glance, Cal-Style's swan looks somewhat like the one by Maddux of Calif., but it actually has a lot more detail. Photos courtesy of Debbie from Sharon, Pennsylvania.
