"[C]hronicles industrialization in this competitive, skill-intensive trade. Nineteenth-century potting remained locked in conflicts between and among manufacturers and workers in which price wars and antiunionism invariable undid both the employers' trade associations and employee trade unions. the shift to specialization in sanitary pottery (bathtubs, sinks, and commodes) after 1900, however saw employers and workers create a cooperative system, which virtually eliminated price wars, strikes, and lockouts." - dj.
