The Monmouth Pottery company was founded in 1892 in Monmouth,Illinois. Until 1906 when it was purchased by Western Stoneware Co., Monmouth was noted for its utilitarian ware. Monmouth became the ‘Art-ware Division’ of Western Stoneware Co. This division was discontinued during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
This wonderful burnt-wood design, similar to the Weller Pottery's Clay-Wood line, is known as the "Egyptian Line", circa 1920's. The bowl has a glossy brown glazed interior and unglazed matt tan exterior with dark brown etched design in a Egyptian Revival motif consisting of large wings, Lotus blossoms and geometric designs and "W" repeated four times surrounding the piece. The bowl measures 8 1/2" across the widest part and 4" in height. It has an embossed mark on the base "The Western Stoneware Company Monmouth ILL". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; great stoneware bowl.
