The Anchor Pottery was established circa 1804 by James E. Norris in Trenton, New Jersey. Backstamps varied through the years, but they usually included the image of a ship's anchor and the word "Anchor." The company is no longer in business. For more details, see "Marks of American Potters" by Edwin Atlee Barber, A.M., Ph.D., Curator and Secretary of the Pennsylvania Museum and School of Industrial Art, Patterson and White Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1904 with thanks to the Trenton Historical Society for making the text and illustrations available online.

The 1926 Zancigs Cup of Destiny is the only known example of this company manufacturing a divination tea cup.
