This is Trevor, one of our craftsman removing some of the tilesWilliam H. Grueby (1867-1925) founded the Grueby Faience Company in 1894 in Boston, Massachusetts. Beginning in 1898, focusing primarily on art pottery vases, he introduced his own version of French matte finishes, including the matte green finish that became his signature work.The popularity of his work, however, spawned mass market competition and eventually resulted in the company's demise in 1909. Grueby emerged from bankruptcy and began limited production runs that included statues, pottery, and tiles, before the companyclosed for good in 1920.This company specialized in architectural tiles, brick and Terracotta. Grueby's work won international acclaim, earning medals at the 1900 International Exposition in Paris, the 1901 Pan -American Exposition in Buffalo, and the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. They were renowned for the matte green glaze which can be found in the 50th Street station. The company, which became even better known for its art pottery, was bought out by the C. Pardee Works in Perth Amboy, New Jersey in 1917.It closed completely in 1938.
