The Griffen, Smith and Hill pottery of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania produced some of the most collectable American majolica from 1879 to 1892.  Their designs were borrowed from nature using flowers, ferns, cauliflower, butterflies, sea shells, corn, begonia, maple, oak leaves, etc.  Their Shell and Seaweed pattern was produced in a full line of dinner, coffee, and tea service brought the pottery high recognition.  Other well-known patterns such as Bamboo and Cauliflower also were manufactured in a complete line.  Most pieces are marked with one of the two versions of their crest.  However, some unmarked pottery can also be attributed to Griffen, Smith and Hill.
