Pottery being formed on a wheel
Description: The caption reads: "Potter at work. Zanesville Weller's Pottery" The company was founded by Samuel Weller in Fultenham, Ohio. He dug the clay soil, made the pottery and fired it in a kiln in his log cabin. He then loaded the pottery on his wagon and drove to Zanesville to sell it door to door. His company was well know with many talented artists. Weller died in 1925, but his company continued until 1848. View on Ohio Memory.
