The Brush Pottery Company was founded in Zanesville, Ohio in 1906 by a man named George Brush, and its early history is closely tied to a better-known pottery, McCoy. The first Brush Pottery lasted only a few years until it burned down and George Brush went to work for the J. W. McCoy Pottery Co. In 1911, the two companies merged and became the Brush-McCoy pottery, and soon after, J.W.'s son Nelson McCoy founded his own pottery as well. After J.W.'s death, Nelson McCoy continued to be involved in the Brush-McCoy pottery until he resigned in 1918. In 1925, the “McCoy” name was dropped and the pottery became known as Brush Pottery. Production continued through the middle of 1982.
