Uhl Pottery Bean Pot with Lid
The UHL Pottery Company was founded by German immigrants August and Louis Uhl in 1849. The business was first located in Evansville, Indiana and then later moved to Huntingburg, Indiana, because of a better source / quality of clay, in 1908. UHL Pottery primarily produced utilitarian wares like crocks, jugs, and other vessels. The pottery remained in business until 1944 when it closed due to economic problems. Today the family still owns the Uhl pottery and produces small versions of the originals, which are dated. You'll notice that this particular piece is a marriage--the lid is a different shade that the pot itself. The inside of the pot is glazed, and the only flaw is a shallow rim chip about 3/16" wide. The inside of the rim and the unglazed part of the bottom shows age and wear from use.
