About Weller Pottery
Charming, varied, and a vestige of American ingenuity at the turn of the 20th century, Weller Pottery pieces remain popular collectibles amongst the ceramics set. There are several different significant production eras in the long history of Weller pottery. The first most significant is the Louwelsa era, the result of a partnership between Weller and ceramicist William Long in the early years of the company. Pieces from this era typically have dark backgrounds with painted floral motifs and a heavy, high-shine glaze on the top. Another popular era that collectors covet is Dickens Ware II pottery from the turn of the 20th century. These pieces feature painted vignettes of characters in Charles Dickens' famous stories. Additional production lines from Weller pottery includes the Sicardo line, characterized by white Weller pottery pieces featuring the luminescent majolica technique, the Zona line, and the distinctly Art Deco Hobart line from the 1920s.
