The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, a
National Historic Landmark,is maintained
as a "working history" museum
by Pennsylvania's County of Bucks,
Department of Parks and Recreation.
Handmade tiles are still produced in a manner
similar to that developed by the
pottery's founder and builder,
Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930). Mercer was a major proponent of the Arts & Crafts Movement in America. He directed the work at the pottery from 1898 until his death in 1930.
