  DORCHESTER POTTERY FOR SALE

*E-O*

The Dorchester Pottery Works; founded in 1895 by George Henderson. Dorchester Pottery's line of distinctive, gray, and blue tableware was introduced. It was shaped on the potter's wheel decorated in slip ware with a Bristol glaze.

When George Henderson died in 1928, his son, Charles, and daughter in law, Ethel Hill Henderson, took over the business. Charles died in 1967, and Ethel continued until her death in 1971 with the help of her brother, Charles Allen Hill, and her sister, Lilly Yeaton. Ethel had been a clothing and design teacher at Dorchester High School. She became superintendent of the kiln, and her two children, George and Lillian, assisted in the family business. The Great Depression took its toll, and sales of commercial stoneware suffered. Ethel began to decorate the stoneware with motifs of old New England, her brother, Charles, added new mixing color techniques from his experience in an earlier career as a chemistry teacher. Decorators names or initials found on the artist decorated pottery include Charles Henderson, Ethel Hill Henderson, Charles Allen Hill, Nando Ricci, Joseph McCune, Phil Spear, Ronald Brake, Robert Trotter, Jackie Burn Callder, Rhoda Ricci and Knessseth Denisons. Ethel Hill Henderson died in 1971, some pieces after that dates are signed I.M.E.H.H. in recognition of her designs (In Memorial Ethel Hill Henderson).

The items offered for sale on this page are antique/vintage.

RAREST DORCHESTER POTTERY Stoneware decorated items you will ever find. This covered pot is (incised) decorated with the comic strip action characters from Al Capp's "LI'L ABNER DOGPATCH". A staple of millions of readers from the 1930's right up till today, the social conscious of the Dogpatch characters live on in our daily vocabulary. This fantastic series of characters were often the embodiment of the social issues of the day in disguise. This example shows Mammy Yokum and Sadie Hawkins chasing Pappy Yokum and his fellow moonshiners. All the while a very young version of Li'l Abner and Daisy May tries to keep up with the moral authorities of Dogpatch. This is a complete one off, one of a kind fantasy homage to the characters of Dogpatch as interpreted by the Dorchester Pottery artist Robert Trotter. The underside of the pot exhibits the DORCHESTER POTTERY mark with R.T. the initials of the artist. Measures 3 3/4" X 3 3/4".
