Anna Pottery was operated by the Kirkpatrick brothers between 1859 and 1896. They took part in art exhibitions such as Philadelphia Centennial in 1876 and the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago 1893. In 1938 the first inscription of Anna pottery was published in the New York Historical Society. Pieces of Anna Pottery Pigs can be found in several museums in the United States, including the Anna Kirkpatrick Pottery Museum and the Union County Museum in Southern Illinois. They can also be found in private art collections.
