Alamo Pottery expanded to Hondo, Texas, and became a profitable sanitary ware business.
The Alamo Pottery was sold to Universal-Rundle in 1951, after nearly 7 years in business.
Nemadji was certainly not the first manufacturer who decorated pottery with a marbled effect.
English agateware, mochaware, European ceramics in the 19th century and some Japanese ceramics as far back as the 16th century all used swirled clays or glazes to approximate the rich veining of marble.
Turn of the century and earlier homes had no running water.
i’ve been buying a few knick knacks here and there, which is always a slow process as you tend to find them sporadically (and need to resist the urge to buy an entire collection that you won’t necessarily love years down the line).
