In 1872 Weller Pottery décor began with only the essentials: a man and a beehive kiln. The result? A glorious upturning of perfectly pastel pots.
Like Stangl Pottery, which also began producing stoneware in the late 19th Century, Weller Pottery was among the first decorative American pottery companies to emerge. Founded by Samuel Weller, a most gifted potter, Weller Pottery pieces harked to the Art Noveau style that was popular at the company’s inception. It then ingeniously paired the designs with soft-hued colors and fluted forms. A noted exception to the formula? Weller’s beloved Louwelsa line. Glazed to a sheen and marbleized in dark shades of copper— it enchants.
