Boleslaw Cybis met Harry Greenberg at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. At some point in the 1940s Cybis moved to Trenton and worked for Greenberg at the Cordey China Company (Robinson and Feeny 1980:60).
“Cordey China was founded in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1942 by Boleslaw Cybis, a Polish painter who had come to the World’s Fair in New York to paint murals for the Polish pavilion É ” (Lehner 1980:46).
Cybis appears to have separated from Cordey sometime prior to 1957 (the year of his death) and set up on his own as Cybis Porcelain.
