The Louisville Stoneware Story

Tracing its roots back to 1815, Louisville Stoneware is one of the oldest continuously operating potteries in Kentucky, still in business today making its famous handmade, handpainted pottery in much the same way as has been done for nearly 200 years. In 1878, the pottery works was purchased by John Bauer and named the J.B. Pottery of Louisville, Kentucky. Sylvester O. Snyder bought the company in 1905, incorporating it a year later under the name Louisville Pottery Company. Its most famous owner, John B. Taylor, operated the company from 1938 to 1970, producing the highly collectible Cherokee, Daniel Boone, and Great Smoky Mountains lines of pottery. John and Vivian Robertson bought the company in 1970 and changed its name to Louisville Stoneware in 1971. Their beautiful pottery items are often stamped on the bottom with their distinctive “artist’s palette” logo composed of two hands, one at the top and one at the bottom, with the top hand holding an artist’s brush. Not surprisingly for a pottery works located in Louisville, many Louisville Stoneware patterns depict horses, with a strong emphasis on Kentucky Derby motifs. Purchased in 1977 by Christina Lee Brown, the company expanded through corporate partnerships and produced many corporate gift items, including a whole line of products for Kentucky Fried Chicken. On her retirement in 2007, the company was sold to Two Stone, Inc., a local investor group, who also retired the famous artist’s palette logo. Known throughout America for its beauty and high quality, Louisville Stoneware pieces are found in the White House and the Smithsonian Institution.
