Alexandria, Virginia, Antique Stoneware Primer
Mark discusses the progression of Alexandria stoneware from around 1820 until the middle of the century--using four Alexandria examples (John Swann, Hugh Smith, Hugh Charles Smith, B.C. Milburn) and one Washington jar (John Walker) to do so. In particular, Mark describes what has become known as the typical Alexandria design, and its use over the decades. Three of these pieces will be sold as part of our November 3, 2012 stoneware auction.
