Harker Pottery Company
The Oldest Pottery in America

Harker Pottery Company – Oldest Pottery in America

Also known as the “oldest pottery in America,” the Harker Pottery Company was incorporated in East Liverpool, Ohio, in 1890, but was later moved by the Harker family to Chester, West Virginia.  It made pottery teapots and other kitchenware from the 1840’s until the mid-1970s.  The company first produced yellow ware and copied Rockingham ware from Rockingham England.  In its late years, Harker Pottery produced stoneware and crockpot liners.

Some of the most popular vintage Harker Pottery items that collectors seek are Cameoware pieces.  Cameoware is the process, sometimes known as italglio, by which a design is cut into a colored glaze.  Usually, the design was applied as a rubber shape before being dipped into the glaze and then removed before firing the piece; however another process sandblasted the design on the item using a stencil.  One thing to remember is that although Harker successfully used these processes, other companies also used them including Bennett Pottery.

A Short History of Pilgrim Glass

If you are looking for an article about the Pilgrims that came to America and introduced us to the Thanksgiving holiday, you are at the wrong place. This article is about Pilgrim Glassworks of West Virginia. This company was situated in the state that also brought us Blenko Glass, Fenton Glass, and West Virginia Glass.  Pilgrim Glassworks however, is not as old as those other venerable companies, but just as admired by collectors. Pilgrim made their mark by specializing in crackle glass and cranberry glass.
