    I have this Bean pot 6" tall, 7" including lid x 9" from tips of handles.
    Bottom is un-glazed and the mark is impressed.
    Does anyone know about these marks and are they earlier?
    Also this what i would call blond color, Is it more rare?

    Pre 1906 when they were bought by Western Stoneware and the maple leaf logo was kept but the name Western Stoneware was incorporated instead.

    "In 1906 the Western Stoneware Co. was formed by the merging of seven different stoneware and pottery companies, these companies were now known as Western Stoneware Co. Plants One Through Seven. This new company kept the same style of maple leaf logo that the Monmouth Pottery Company had used previously. It just seemed to fit as the city of Monmouth is known for it's maple trees and is often referred to as "Maple City". Many of the early Western Stoneware vessels such as crocks and jugs were marked with the maple leaf logo that now read: Western Stoneware Co. Plant 1 or 2 or whatever number of the seven plants that had produced it."

    I wouldn't call it blond - that to me would be a 'yellowy' color. It is just the clay used with no pigment added, except on rim & knob.

    Wow!!
    Thanks for the information.
    This was an impulse purchase for $5.00. I think I got a deal.

    Thank you very much. I've been googling all afternoon and can't find any that look like this.
