De Eendracht (1808-1830)

Willem Pieter Bellaard established De Eendragt in 1808 at the premises on Gasthuislaan where Het Oude Moriaenshoofd and Het Jonge Moriaenshoofd had been housed two decades earlier. Bellaard ran the pottery with his brother and a number of others. De Grieksche A pottery later merged with De Eendragt.

In 1816 the partnership was terminated and De Eendragt was sold to Hendrik Marquart Sr., who ran the company for a time with his son, but was declared bankrupt in 1832. The sale of the buildings and equipment in 1818 brought an end to the history of De Grieksche A.1
