Q: Can you tell me what company used this mark? It pictures a globe with the word “Dresden” on it.

A: The Potters’ Co-Operative Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio, used this mark. The co-operative started in 1882 and included eight potteries from the East Liverpool area. One of those potteries was The Dresden Pottery Works, which was started by Brunt, Bloor, Martin and Company in 1875 or 1876. Whiteware, hotel ware, toilet ware, and some decorative wares were made. The pottery was renamed Dresden Pottery Company in 1925 and went out of business in 1927.
