Potteries of Trenton Society


Trenton Potteries Database

POTS is working with the N.J. Department of Transportation to be named steward of the Trenton Potteries Database. The database, compiled by Hunter Research for the NJDOT, contains information on Trenton's industrial potteries from 1850 to 1940. POTS is planning to update and distribute the database, and to make it available on the web.

Teacups to Toilets

POTS has received permission from the Department of Transportation to reprint the teacher's guide From Teacups to Toilets: A Century of Industrial Pottery In Trenton, Circa 1850 to 1940. The guide was written and pro­duced by Hunter Research and Wilson Creative Marketing for the Department of Transportation. Download pdf.
