Circa: 1970-1990
Manufacturer: Onion River Pottery, Winooski, Vermont

How iconic can you get for your daily java mug! Here you go. This handled mug was made by the Onion River Pottery in South Burlington Vermont. The company's products are easy to find around Vermont but its history was much more difficult to locate.
After WWII, Frank W. Goss (1921-2011) and his wife Marjorie Major started a pottery named Contemporary Ceramics, perhaps later to be named Goss Pottery, then around 1970 renamed Onion River Pottery. Steven F. Goss was apparently also involved with the founding of the pottery. I am not clear on the relationship between these two men. It operated in various locations around Vermont: New Haven, Middleburg, Winooski, and South Burlington. I am not exactly clear on the relationship between Goss and Onion River except that its products are identical. I assume Goss Pottery was an earlier name of the Onion River Pottery Company.
The pottery used many characteristic bas-relief patterns impressed on a red clay form and exposed through a grey speckled slip glaze.
This coffee mug features the mountains and trees of the "Green Mountain State". It is signed with the words ONION RIVER POTTERY SO. BURLINGTON VT inside an onion shape. Winooski, one of the locations for this pottery, derives its name from an Abenaki word meaning "wild onion".It is in excellent condition.
