ABOUT PENNSBURY POTTERY:
Founded by husband and wife team Henry and Lee Below in 1950, Pennsbury Pottery was one of the last quintessential art wares potteries in America. Located near Pennsbury Manor, the colonial-era home of William Penn on the Delaware River in Pennsylvania; Pennsbury Pottery created an extensive line of Amish âeoePennsylvania Dutchâe themed Folk Art pottery, and several other smaller lines âe" including a line of birds very similar to those produced by Stangl. Both Henry and Lee were veterans of Stangl Pottery (of Flemington and Trenton, New Jersey) âe" he a ceramic engineer and master mold maker; she a talented artist, designer, and modeler. Henryâe(tm)s early and untimely death in 1959 at the age of 55 meant that Lee alone would guide Pennsbury in its second decade. She continued the operation âe" producing many of Pennsburyâe(tm)s best-loved designs âe" until, after a long illness, she passed away in 1968. Pennsbury closed in 1970.
