Owens Pottery

Owens Pottery was founded in 1885, in Zanesville, Ohio, by J.B. Owens. He first started making pottery in 1885 near Roseville, Ohio, then built a plant in Zanesville in 1891. A few years later in 1897, they began to produce art pottery, producing over 48 pottery lines during that period. That lasted until 1907, when the company turned their attention to making tile and changed their name to J.B Owens Floor & Wall Tile Company.

There are some similarities between Owens Pottery and Roseville and Weller, since they used some of the same pottery artists.

Some techniques were used exclusively by Owens. Red Flame ware and Mission, depicting Spanish Missions. Opalesce and Coralene were also very popular.

Owens Pottery went out of business in 1929.

    We have a vase with crackle glaze. The mark on the bottom says: OWENS 1271
    My grandmother got it in the 1930’s.

    Any idea of the history?

    Another thing that business owners should consider is performing fire
    drills. Give the potential client time to go
    through the proposal. Some of the cost from this service can be written off when it comes to
    filing your taxes.

    Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Bless you!
