Female-Founded in 1880
Our founder, Maria Longworth Storer Nichols made history on Thanksgiving Day in 1880 – founding the first large manufacturing enterprise led by a woman in the United States. Within a decade, Rookwood gained international acclaim, rivaling European and Asian potteries that had been in existence for hundreds (even thousands) of years. At the time, Maria couldn't have imagined the impact starting her own pottery would have, or the significance it has on Rookwood Pottery today.
