Description ​Knowles, Taylor & Knowles (KT&K) was a pottery company in East Liverpool, Ohio from 1854 to 1931. The original owners were: Issac Knowles, John Taylor, (Issac's son-in-law) and Homer Knowles (Issac's son). The pottery produced all types of wares from yellow ware, ironstone, and semi-vitreous dinnerware, but it is best known for the light-weight, translucent Lotus Ware. Produced mainly in the 1890s, Lotus was meant to compete with the successfull Belleek porcelain made in Ireland.

The landscape of the plant shows the scale of manufacture indicated also by the the numerous kilns on the property. KT&K was a part of an extensive pottery district which included East Liverpool and Wellsville in Ohio and Chester and Newell across the Ohio River in West Virginia.
