Gort Pottery, famous for its "Bone China,"
was founded by two brothers, Eric and Walter Gort. Having been born in
Russia, they set up shop in Metuchen, NJ in 1944. Unfortunately, their
endeavor was short lived. They closed the company in1954. However, the
quality of their offerings is unsurpassed. Eric Gort was the artist with a
background in the Theater. His attention to detail is exemplary. A large
number of birds and animals were created and all are first rate. Most
figurines are marked.
