A Brief History of Western Stoneware

In the mid 1800's, families from Colchester, England immigrated to Illinois and created a new settlement with the same name. Many of these settlers had been potters in England and quickly discovered an ample supply of clay in the area. Western Stoneware dinnerware production opened a few years before the turn of the century and continues to offer high quality natural stoneware from that location to the present day.

By 1906 the plant had a capacity of 6 million gallons of Western Stoneware dinnerware a year, creating stone crocks, jugs, butter churns, jars, dinnerware and other stoneware products.
