Weller Pottery, around 1915, developed a series of embossed naturalistic lines which included Brighton, Muskota, Woodcraft, Forest, Baldin, Flemish, Ardsley, Glendale and others, ending with Coppertone in 1929. Lorber also developed Ivory (1910), Zona (1911), and the 1927 Art Deco lines Hobart and Lavonia. Dorothy England Laughead developed the Silvertone and Chase lines in the 1920s. Most Zanesville firms discontinued their expensive hand-painted lines around WWI, but Weller modernized his ware and created Weller Hudson (1917), one of the firm's greatest lines, and certainly one that is prized by today's collectors. Hudson featured hand-painted florals on a shaded, matt background of blue and cream. Scenic and portrait vases were also occasionally done, and other background colors used on related lines such as Hudson Perfecto and Rochelle. Most Hudson vases are artist signed, unlike the related but simpler Blue and Decorated and White and Decorated lines.The Weller Pottery is noteworthy for continuing its production of hand-painted ware well beyond other Zanesville firms, but the Depression hurt the sale of art pottery in the USA, and Weller turned its talented decorators to simpler, more standardized designs to increase production. Bonito (1932) used many forms, but its hand-painted decoration tends to be similar from pot to pot. The 1934 hand-painted Art Deco lines Geode, Stellar, Cretone and Raceme used simple but striking decorations, and are very popular today. These lines were the Weller Pottery's last free-hand decorated ware. Sam Weller died in 1925, but his company, buoyed by Hudson, the embossed ware, the figurals of Rudolph Lorber and Dorothy England Laughead, and by talented Zanesville artists including Mae and Sarah Timberlake, Hester Pillsbury, Claude Leffler, Sarah McLaughlin, Ruth Axline and others, flourished through the 1920s and 1930s. The company could not adapt to changing times, and Sam Weller's Pottery closed in 1948, some 75 years after his log cabin start at Fultenham, Ohio.
