DESCRIPTION
Stereograph of the Hampshire Pottery Co. located in Keene, New Hampshire. This pottery was founded by James Scollay Taft in 1871. At first they made stone jars and jugs, flower pots, soap dishes, pitchers, and milk pans which were a dark brown or gray color. In 1878 he started a line of majolica, producing pottery in green, brown, yellow, and blue with raised figures and decorations. In 1883, they began to manufacture art pottery including fancy jars, pitchers, vases, trays and tea sets, consisting of a white opaque body painted with flowers and other decorations. The business was sold in 1916 and finally closed in 1923.
