In operation



Public sale notice for Davis & Dowd Pottery. “This is a Six-kiln Pottery and complete in all its apppointments” (Trenton Evening Times, Thursday, March 28, 1889).

“Davis operated his pottery until September 1887 when he sold it for $30,000 to a newly formed corporation, The Davis and Dowd Pottery Co. The new endeavor did not fare well and the pottery was sold to settle debts pursuant to court order in April 1889” (Goldberg 1998:18).
