Manufacturer: Mountain Kiln Pottery, Bristol, Vermont

Made in Bristol Vermont, this Moutain Kiln Pottery 4 inch square 4 rest ashtray was made by either John F. Kennedy or Paul T. Kennedy, brothers who formed Green Mountain Wood Crafters in Charlotte Vermont in 1937 and worked there until a fire in 1942.

Post WWII, they were located in Bristol Vermont until 1959. They moved into the former Sheffield Farms building on Route 22A in Vergennes in 1960, adding a gift shop where tourists were able to watch the wood ware being made. From 1960-1980 they had several retail locations in Florida, New York, New Hampshire but the most successful was in downtown Burlington at the corner of College and Church street, now Sweetwater's restaurant since 1980, though the Kennedy family still owns the building.


The earliest piece I have heard of is a pitcher dated 1947. I do not yet know when the pottery stopped operating. I now know that whichever brother was not involved with the wooden ware Vergennes operation opened a store in New Haven, VT which was operating as late as 1971 when an acquaintance's grandmother stopped and bought some pottery marked as Pittsfield Potters there.

In excellent condition, it is glazed in a multi-hued green-blue glaze. The base clay appears to be a red eartheware. It is marked with the incised initials MKP and Bristol, VT.
