In 1905 Western Pottery took over Queen City Pottery Works and the Denver China and Pottery Company, both located in Denver.In 1919 the company changed its name to the "Denver Pottery Company". The Western Pottery Mfg, Co is not to be confused with Western Stoneware of Monmouth Illinois, best recognized by its maple leaf logo, but there is no connection other than a similar sounding name.
