What is the history of Monmouth Western Stonewear?

Answer

In 1906 the Western Stoneware Company of Monmouth, Illinois was established by the merging of seven separate stoneware and pottery companies. These companies became known as Western Stoneware Co. plants one through seven. The new company retained the same style of maple leaf logo that was used by the Monmouth Pottery Company. It seemed rather fitting since the city of Monmouth is known for its maple trees. A lot of the early Western Stoneware vessels like crocks and jugs were marked with the maple leaf logo that read: Western Stoneware Co. Plant 1 or 2 or whichever number of the seven plants had produced the item.

I have one also. A live auction site said $100 to $300. But there is one on Ebay right now with no bids. Maybe shipping is more that the crock is worth. Not sure.
