About Louisville Stoneware

Not too many companies in the United States can boast about being two hundred years old, but Louisville Stoneware can do just that!

The Kentucky business was started in 1815 when three friends had individual companies, but shared the equipment needed to produce their pottery. In 1815 they decided to form one company -- The J.B. Taylor Company. The company's main product and business was salt-glazed food storage crocks. Salt-glaze was used to help preserve the foods.

John Taylor purchased the company in 1938 and at that time the company started producing dinnerware products. At one point in time MA Hadley was said to have worked for Taylor before starting her own company.

Taylor sold the company in 1970 and it has since changed hands three times.The current owners have been in place since 2007 and & the business is doing better than ever.

At this time two \clays are combined for the stoneware -- from Indiana and Kentucky. The company spokesman mentioned that the Indiana clay will soon be phased out and it will be an all Kentucky product. It's been said that no fewer than twenty craftsmen will touch (and work on) each piece of pottery during the process of being created.
