Coxon & Thompson Pottery (Trenton Potteries Co.) - In 1863, Charles Coxon, one of the important designers and modelers of the nineteenth century, opened his own pottery in partnership with John F. Thompson. Coxon died in 1868. The family continued to operated the pottery until its was acquired by Alpaugh & McGowan in 1883. The pottery continued as the Empire Pottery. In 1892, it joined with five other potteries to create the Trenton Potteries Company. The combine concentrated on sanitary ware but also marketed a line of decorative vases and figures. The Trenton Potteries Company was acquired by the Crane Company in the 1920's but continued operation under its own name until 1969 when the Trenton operations were closed.
