Portage – Conant Street Pottery 1861 – 1863

In June 1860 Isaac Farrar left the Farrar & Russell partnership and nine months later was in full production at a new pottery he had started just a few blocks away on Conant Street that he called “I.N. Farrar & Co”. Their products were very similar to those made at the De Witt Street pottery. The “& Co” was probably Isaac’s father Moses. The pottery closed between June 1863 and February 1864 after two years of operation.
