1913: MADDOCK POTTERY EXPANDING
Happy 300K-hits! In the 1850s, Maddock set up shop at Perry and Carroll streets and began marketing his tableware and tiles along the East Coast. If not the equal to Staffordshire pottery, Maddock pottery
was strong, craftsmanlike and cheap, and it became a national brand name. Maddock really found his niche in 1874 by branching into a new field, sanitary ware, which is basically a nice term for toilets. Soon, with Maddock at the forefront, Trenton was making more than 80 percent of the nation's bathroom fixtures. http://capitalcentury.com/1923.htmlBy SJBill
