The value of items produced by Weller Pottery Company from 1872 through 1948 varied as widely as the wares the company produced such as flower pots, bowls, crocks, and vases. Founded in Fultonham, Ohio, by Samuel Weller, at one point Weller Pottery was the largest pottery in the county (1905).
The most valuable Weller pottery are the early hand-decorated pieces. After 1935, the company made only molded pottery until the company closed in 1948. The later items are considerably less valuable than the older pieces made from the late 1800s through the early 1930s. To estimate the value, try to date your pieces by identifying Weller's unique pottery marks.
