American Terra Cotta Company Architecture Brochure Original 1935  Wall Block


statlergil Store YOU ARE offerDING ON: Original Brochure from American Terra Cotta Company on American Wall Block from 1930 to 1940

This is a professional brochure provided to architects. This brochure provides general and detailed information that a architect would need to design and specify the product. Original stand alone brochures (not cut out of catalog books) are increasingly difficult to find and very unusual to find in this condition. Typically after an architect retired or closed his business, this original source material was thrown out. Yet it is this original source material that was used by architects to create the designs of the age. What makes this piece unique is that this piece came from the American Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company factory in Crystal Lake, Ill. It was from a select number of original brochures that were never used.

AGE: Piece is undated. Best estimate is that this brochure was probably made 1930 to 1945. On the cover is a picture of the interior of the Indianapolis Union Station by McLahan & Becker Architects. .

CONDITION: Excellent. Condition is as close to what might be considered new - old stock. This was a brochure that came from the American Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company factory in Crystal Lake IL in the early 1970s. This brochure was from a remainder box of brochures that had never been used by the company. Because this brochure is probably about seventy years old, there is the normal yellowing expected on the paper.

Brochure is 12 pages: 11 pages printed with the back cover left blank. Exterior is a card stock similar to a file folder. Interior pages are a glossy stock. Brochure was designed to be like a file folder to fit into an architect’s product literature files. Overall size is 9 3/8”x11 ¾” with the interior size being 8 ½ x 11. Original pages were printed double size, folded and stapled.

COMPANY HISTORY: The American Terra Cotta Company was founded 1881 by W. D. Gates. In 1888, name became American Terra Cotta Company with factory near Crystal Lake, Illinois. Expanded operations and absorbed other firms, including the Indianapolis Terra Cotta, Midland Terra Cotta in Chicago, and Winkle Terra Cotta in St. Louis. In 1966, American Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company ceased manufacturing clay products. Although the company ‘s main business was the production of Architectural Terra Cotta, it is often better known for the matt green TECO art pottery. The company also produced a line of garden pottery.

The remaining drawings, records and photos from the American Terra Cotta Company were transferred to the Northwestern Architectural Archives at the University of Minnesota in The American Terra Cotta Index was prepared by Statler Gilfillen, Prairie School Press, Chicago 1975
