The History behind Liberty Blue China

Liberty Blue was first created in the mid-1970s to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Benjamin Franklin Federal Savings and Loan Bank. The bank commissioned Enoch Wedgwood & Co, a Staffordshire-based manufacturer renowned for high-quality ceramics, to create an exclusive set to incentivize new bank deposits. 

The bank’s marketing promotion coincided with the 1976 American Bicentennial.

After the bank ended their promotion in 1977, some grocery stores in various parts of the country began offering pieces to their customers.
