The first time I saw an piece marked “Aborn” I thought it was a typo. But after seeing a few of these pieces, I’m now pretty sure that’s the name of a California company that produced mostly planters. Many of these planters have a distinctive “scalloped” edging, although there are quite a few companies who made pieces like that, California and not.

Aborn - Potteries of California

I think this company would fall into the rather large camp of Barbara Willis imitators. Some others in the group include The Bennetts, Adelle and Stahl. Many of these vases and planters have a large unglazed or brown painted section that is often “textured” in some way. The Aborn pieces I’ve seen come in a variety of different glazes. I was not able to locate any information at all about the company and its whereabouts. I think the time of production on these items might be as late as 60s-70s.

Most items are marked on bottom in-mold with “Aborn”, usually in script. Usually, the word California or Calif is present, along with an item number. I’ve seen a few items which also had the name of the line. Note: I see the company name commonly mis-transcribed from the stamp as something like: “Alorn” or “Alorm”.

Note: We've tried to provide as much info as possible on this pottery maker or artist. For further info, you may want to research the items they have on Ebay listed under this name. We've tried to hand tailor the searches below so they will bring up the most accurate results. If there are no results, it will list general California pottery.
