John B Taylor Ceramics Mark, No "Made in USA" (photos)




Someone gave me a pitcher marked "John B Taylor Ceramics". When I tried to look the mark up, all I could find was a mark that said "John B Taylor Made in USA". Mine just has the name. Is this an earlier mark? It would be awesome to learn when this was made.

John B Taylor Marks NEW
by: Ann Patrick

Thanks for the information! I have lots of these pieces that I've collected or been gifted over the past 45 years. The first piece I got was a large pitcher with the name scrawled in a circular pattern that I never could make out. Some pieces have just the initials JBT inside a circle, and just a few have the "Ceramics Make in USA" added to the name. My large flared top mugs have no mark at all.

John B Taylor date range
by: Joe

This mark dates before 1970 when the company changed names, and the piece it appears on here dates after 1954, because that is when the pattern, "Harvest", was introduced. The mark shown would be from the earlier part of that period. Sometime after 1954 the "Made in USA" was added (it is a marketing effort; country of origin marks were required only for imports). Sometime in the 1960's, the pattern title was added to the mark (John B Taylor Ceramics/ Made in USA/ Harvest). In 1970 the company was sold and the mark on this pattern became "Louisville Stoneware Company/ Made in Kentucky,USA / Harvest". The pattern remains active, but it is known today as "Pear".
