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.
