North State Pottery (Sanford, NC, 1924 - 1959)

North State Pottery was founded in 1924 by Rebecca Palmer Cooper (1886-1924), who was assisted in its operation by her husband, Henry (1886-1959). The Coopers were not potters and originally employed others to throw pots. The pottery made mostly art wares and produced especially fine glazes.
