    Can anyone give me some general information about Arners Ceramics and Pottery?

    Found a ceramic pitcher/vase with the name Arners stamped on the bottom. Can't find much information on the company...does anyone know anything about them?

    Medal Arners's Ceramics

    Arner's was in business from 1860 until the mid 1970's. Creating first practical, then decorative decor for the home.

    Identifying marks on a Arner's piece can be difficult, but for the vast majority of their pieces the name "Arner's". Is written into the piece by hand prior to being "fired" most often with a production number.

    From 1950 until the 1970's they produced under contract for a variety of chains, so you will sometimes find an ink stamp of the business completed prior to the last fire.

    It should be noted that the most valuable Arner's are the ones that bore mistakes in either the firing process or the engraving or stamp on the piece. If spelling errors or mistakes in production numbers were made, artists at the production site were allowed to take them home until 1960, when found employees were intentionally making these mistakes and reselling to small area shops.
