Notes

“The pottery grew steadily, purchasing the Anchor Pottery Company, Trenton, New Jersey in 1926. During that same year, the name Stangl appeared for the first time on the Fulper productsÉ From 1935 until its closing, all Stangl ware was produced in Trenton” (Rehl 1979:7).

“In 1926, Anchor Pottery closed down and the property was acquired by Fulper Pottery Co. of Flemington. Fulper which traced its origin back to the early 19th Century had not previously conducted operations in Trenton. This acquisition came near the end of its existence as a separate entity. Fulper was pruchased in 1929 by Martin Stengl who had worked for Fulper as Superintendent. Operations at the site continued until the early 1970’s. Although pottery production has ceased at this location, portions of the pottery facilities remain in existence on New York Avenue south of Mulberry Avenue [sic]” (Goldberg 1998:41).
