About the Stangl Pottery Company:

Stangl Pottery's early history goes back to 1814 when it started as Hill Pottery in Flemington, New Jersey. Drain pipes, storage crocks and jars were made from the red earth clay in the area. Abram Fulper purchased the company in the 1860s, focusing on stoneware rather than earthenware. By 1909, Fulper Pottery had moved into art pottery production with its well-known Vasekraft line.

In 1910, ceramic engineer Martin Stangl went to work for Fulper to develop new shapes and glazes. Stangl left Fulper's employ in 1914 to go to Haeger where he created its new art pottery line, borrowing many of Fulper's styles and glazes. The mottled green glaze which he used at Haeger was borrowed from Fulper, and later imitated by other potteries. Much unmarked art pottery from the period imitates this glaze and can be variously confused as Haeger, Fulper or even Grueby or Rookwood.

Stangl rejoined Fulper in 1919, where his continued success led to his becoming vice-president in 1924, when he introduced the first open stock solid-color dinnerware. The company's facilities had expanded to three production factories, though when the original factory in Flemington burned in 1929, production was transferred into the two remaining ones. Stangl purchased Fulper in 1929 and changed the company's name to Stangl Pottery. In 1935, the smaller facility was turned into a retail showroom, in effect becoming the first "factory outlet".
