The Eldreth Pottery Showroom and Factory is located in
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in a town called Oxford.
After driving down bucolic country roads, here's what you see.
Doesn't this just beckon you to go in and take a look?
What a welcoming entrance!
Meet Dave & Faye Eldreth, and their daughter Dana.
All the warmth of a family-owned business!
Eldreth Pottery was established in 1982, with beginnings in a basement, followed by growth and success!
I'll take one of each of these great coffee mugs!
All the pottery is handmade using traditional German techniques.
Everything is food safe, plus oven, microwave & dishwasher safe.
A lovely menagerie!
The sheen of salt-glaze!
Oh, the variety of beautifully painted plates!
Here are some of the Redware Annual Santas.
Other Annual Collections feature Snowmen and Salt-glazed Santas.
Accent your garden with Bird Houses and Bird Feeders!
Toad Houses, Lanterns and Bird Baths are available too.
Lovin' the koi, and this whimsical mermaid.
Pete took me behind the scenes. From the mixer to the kilns, this is where the action is!
Snowmen and Santas all lined up. Everything was so orderly.
Talented artisans at work.
Every piece is hand painted, then signed and dated by the artist.
Tools of the trade.
The big kilns.

I so enjoyed my visit! I couldn't resist bringing home a purchase,
which I can't tell you about since I'd reveal the secret gift for a special someone!
(After I give it to her, I'll come back and show you a photo.)
