Checklist of Illinois Potters and Potteries

Checklist of Illinois Potters and Potteries

Author: Eva Dodge Mounce

1989, 92 pp., figures

The Historic Illinois Potteries series was published by the Foundation for Historical Research of Illinois Potteries in the 1980s and ‘90s. While all the printed publications about historic Illinois potters and potteries are out of print, ISAS has made these three available via PDF with permission from the Foundation. We continue to work to complete this series so that researchers and educators might still have access to this research. These publications document the wide range of potters and their wares that were produced throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Checklist of Illinois Potters and Potteries is divided into five major geographical regions—southern, west central, east central, northwestern, and northeastern counties. Within each region, the checklist lists in alphabetical order the counties and the names of individual potters and potteries.
