Grueby

Grueby Faience Company was founded in 1894 by William Grueby who was inspired by the matte glazes on French pottery, particularly the cucumber green that became the company’s hallmark, and the refined simplicity of Japanese ceramics. In its heyday, Grueby was sold through Tiffany Studios in New York City and Gustav Stickley who incorporated their tiles in his furniture. Alas, due to bankruptcy, a fire, and eventual sale, the company closed for good in 1920.
