Producing over 48 distict lines in it's eleven-year run, the Owens Pottery was considered one of the "Big Three of Zanesville". Famous designers and decorators employed include Frank Ferrell, W.A. Long, John Lessell, and Charles Chilcote. Lines popular with collectors include Lotus, Utopian, Aqua Verde, Henri Deux, and Soudanese.


Collecting Owens pottery is not without challenges, as none of their many catalogs have ever come to light.

Their wide range of lines provide opportunities to match nearly any decor, with prices well below the more well-known competitors of the time.
