About Hampshire Pottery

Hampshire Pottery InformationHampshire Pottery began production in 1871. The pottery was founded by James Taft. Hampshire Pottery first introduced the widely popular matte green glaze in 1883. In 1904 Cadmon Robertson joined Hampshire Pottery and was soon placed in charge of production. Robertson developed over 900 glazes while with Hampshire Pottery and was responsible for many of the forms.

Robertson passed away in 1914 which left Hampshire solely in the hands of Taft. Just after Robertson’s death, Taft determined to cease production. In 1916 Taft sold Hampshire Pottery to George Morton who was previously with Grueby Pottery.

Hampshire pottery continued for only a year under Morton’s direction and was closed in 1917. After the end of World War I, Morton reopened Hampshire Pottery with primary production being white china for hotels and restaurants. Hampshire Pottery closed permanently in 1923.
