Buffalo Pottery was made in Buffalo, New York, after 1902. The company was started by the Larkin Company that had manufactured soap since 1875. Larkin wanted to give a soap dish as a premium so he opened a pottery company. The premium idea was successful and the Buffalo Pottery made the premiums. The pottery is marked with a picture of a buffalo and the date of manufacture. Deldare ware is the most famous pottery made at the factory. It has either a khaki-colored or green background with hand-painted transfer designs.
