Weller Pottery was founded by Samuel Weller in Fultonham, Ohio, in 1872. In 1882 he moved the company to Zanesville, Ohio, where he produced flower pots, crocks, bowls and vases. In 1895 Weller purchased Lonhuda Pottery and the company grew in size and prestige, producing historic patterns such as Eocean, Etna LaSa and Sicardi – all of which are in the April 26 auction.
Royal Bayreuth has been produced in the same factory in Tettau, Germany since its founding in 1794. It remains the finest and oldest German porcelain producer, best known for its tableware for daily use (mainly beautiful dinnerware and tea and coffee sets) and a wide variety of colorful figural pieces that are highly sought after by collectors. The firm has survived wars and disasters.
