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 largestpottery 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. Not surprising
that the pictured carafe continues to be in such pristine condition. It carries the original mark of the Monmouth Company which is
the plain Maple Leaf. When the company was purchased by Western Stoneware they incorporated the logo, but added the wording and famous
blue coloring. This piece is fired with a Carmel glaze and has molded ribs running vertically up the base and neck and the rest of
this piece is smooth. It measures 11 ¼ inches tall from base to the top of the lid and is free from chips, cracks, or crazing. There
is brazing to the rim on the bottom as can be expected with stoneware of this age.
