About Samuel Augustus Weller

Founder and president of the S.A. Weller Pottery Company in Zanesville, OH.

Weller Pottery was founded by Samuel Weller in Fultonham, Ohio, United States in 1872. The original business consisted of a small cabin and one kiln and initial products produced by Weller included flower pots, crocks, bowls, and vases.

In 1882, Mr. Weller moved the pottery to Zanesville, Ohio, United States. In 1893, William Long became partners with Weller and moved his Lonhuda Faience Company to Zanesville. Long’s partnership with Weller dissolved in less than one year.

Weller continued to produce Lonhuda pottery but changed its name to Weller Louwelsa. The Louwelsa name originated from the first three letters “Lou” of his daughter’s name, Louise, and “Wel” from his last name. The “SA” was reportedly taken from his initials.
