The Peters and Reed Pottery Company was established by John D. Peters and Adam Reed in 1899. Peters and Reed's first truly successful art pottery line, Moss Aztec, was designed by Frank Ferrell and introduced in 1912. Ferrell, of course, would move on in 1918 to the Roseville Pottery, where he would design more than ninety highly recognizable and beloved pottery lines over the next 35 years. Peters and Reed changed its name to The Zane Pottery Company in the early 1920's, but continued to produce many of the art pottery lines introduced by Peters and Reed until 1941, when the company was sold to Gonder Pottery.
