Under Construction (January 1, 2005)

The East Palestine Pottery Company and its successor, the W. S. George Pottery Company, were in business for well over 50 years.  Around 30 different shapes were produced, with literally hundreds of patterns.  The shape name is often mistaken for the pattern name.

Below is a list of the known shapes produced by the East Palestine Pottery Company and the W. S. George Pottery company.  This is most likely not a comprehensive list, as continuing research always seems to unearth another one...
