This knob and others like it are called “Bennington” because the original ones were made in Bennington, Vermont, by the Fenton factory. The knobs are pottery based with a glaze applied before firing. Special craftsmanship, however, was used on the Bennington. The glaze and/or clay was manipulated to give the knob a spotted or swirl look.
