Victor Obler, a Russian immigrant, founded and operated Royal Crown Pottery and Porcelain Company in Merry Oaks, North Carolina, from 1939 - 1942. The pottery produced stoneware, but never porcelain. With the onset of World War II, Obler was unable to obtain the necessary materials for his glazes, and the pottery closed in 1942 after having operated for only three years. The pottery got its name after Obler saw a sign advertising Royal Crown Cola.

Reference: Barbara Stone Perry , North Carolina Pottery, the Collection of the Mint Museum. The Mint Museum owns ten pieces of Royal Crown pottery.
