Garden City Pottery, San Jose, CA  1902-1987

By the 1940’s, production at the Garden City Pottery rivaled that of many of the largest potteries in Los Angeles.   The colorful glazes resemble those of Bauer and Fiesta, and Garden City’s many  designs, whether dinnerware, art pottery or garden ware, are very unique.   Montgomery Ward and Macy’s were a couple of their largest customers.  One of the company’s well-known designers was Royal Arden Hickman, who also designed for his own Ra-Art Pottery, then later for the Haeger Pottery Co.    Contact us if there’s something you are looking for; perhaps we’ll have it.   Our very large inventory mostly came from the estate of an avid Garden City collector.
