Hampshire Pottery
1871-1923
About 150 feet north of here stood
the famous Hampshire Pottery Works,
founded by James Scolly Taft for
the manufacture of earthenware. In
1878 Majolica ware was a major
product, followed in 1883 by the
addition of useful and decorative
art objects and souvenir pieces. With
the introduction in 1904 of the
famous "mat glaze," Hampshire Pottery
was recognized as a leader in its field.
