Company / Artist Description :

An experiment of art pottery created by Alexander Robertson, formerly with Halcyon Pottery.  He used clay and resources from the Aberhill Coal and Clay Company but failed to start a business retailing goods under a partnership.  Most works are very lightly colored or unglazed.  His work won a gold medal at the San Diego Exposition in 1915-1916.  Early pottery works were incised with A.C.C. Co. Cal., later pieces impressed "Alberhill".  Often times the artist initials A.W.R and date will be found on the bottoms.  Sometimes an anchor symbol will accompany, indicating the clay composition that was used to produce the item. Roughly two years worth of output.  Rare.
