A Short History of the Monmouth Pottery Company
Monmouth Pottery Company was erected in Monmouth Illinois in February of 1893 by William Hanna and associates to make use of the vast deposits of stoneware clays in that area. They were one of the seven Midwest companies that joined together to form the Western Stoneware Company in 1906. The Monmouth Pottery Company claimed it was the largest pottery in the world in 1898. Monmouth Pottery Co. was sold in 1905 and became one of seven other pottery companies to form Western Stoneware Co. in April 1906. Monmouth was known as plant #1 and occasionally you will see the Western Stoneware mark with a number indicating which plant it was produced at.
Monmouth pottery was well known for their variety of salt-glazed utilitarian wares excellent in quality and durability.
