Inscription. This building Served as Fulper Pottery Company's factory #2 from 1924 until 1935. The three large kilns in this building are the last known commercial pottery kilns of this type in the State of New Jersey. In 1935 all manufacturing was transferred to factory #3 in Trenton and this building was utilized as a factory outlet and showroom. Stangl's Flemington outlet was renowned for dinnerware bargains of first and second quality. Notable celebrities frequenting this shop during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s included band leader Paul Whiteman, Actress Zasu Pitts, and Actor Ralph Bellamy. In 1978 the building and property was sold to Pfaltzgraff of York, PA and has continued as a pottery outlet and showroom.
