Researcher notes:The William Brunt Pottery was run by William Brunt from 1847-1856 with his son Henry joining him 1856-1895. The company was also known as the Riverside Knob Works making door knobs and electrical porcelain. William H. Brunt ran the pottery until his death in early 1912. The plant was then sold to William S. Brunt until it was taken over in 1917 by General Porcelain Co.
