While Baltimore potters had been producing crude stoneware for many years prior, the move of Henry Remmey, Sr. from New York to Baltimore in 1812 completely transformed the local stoneware craft. Remmey was quickly producing high-quality stoneware with vibrant blue decorations, and this rubbed off on contemporaries like the Parr brothers. (One of Remmey's masterpieces, a water cooler with incised bird made while he was working at merchant Henry Myers' manufactory, set the World Auction Record for Baltimore stoneware at our July 2004 sale.) Thanks to Remmey's influence, Baltimore would become one of the chief centers of stoneware production in the entire country.

Selection of Antique Baltimore Stoneware

Luke discusses a fine selection of Baltimore stoneware that will be included as part of our March 1, 2014 stoneware & redware pottery auction. Luke is currently authoring a book on the subject of Baltimore stoneware.

Very Important MORGAN MAKER (Wm. Morgan, Baltimore, c1822-27) Stoneware Cooler

Luke discusses one of the finest pieces of American stoneware we have ever handled: a profusely-decorated water cooler made by William Morgan in Baltimore circa 1822-1827, bearing an elaborate incised design of birds in a flowering tree. Possibly the greatest example of early Baltimore stoneware in existence, it will be sold as part of our landmark July 20, 2013 Auction of American Stoneware & Redware Pottery.

Henry Remmey (Baltimore) Stoneware, 1812-1829

Luke discusses the work of Henry Remmey in Baltimore, using two examples of his work we will be selling on March 2, 2013 as part of our first antique American stoneware auction of the year. Luke's groundbreaking 2004 article on Remmey was the first to flesh out the Baltimore years of this prolific potter, as well as the long-sought origin of "H. MYERS" stoneware--discussed in this video. Luke's information on H. Remmey will be part of our important lecture to be held on March 1 in Sparks, Maryland ("Inferior to None: The Remmeys, First Family of American Stoneware").

Early Baltimore Stoneware Birds Crock

Luke discusses a remarkable Baltimore stoneware discovery: a circa late 1810's stoneware jar bearing the cobalt design of five birds in a vine. Clearly influenced by the work of fellow Baltimore potter Henry Remmey, it was probably made by Elisha Parr. This exceptionally decorated example will be sold as part of our November 3, 2012 stoneware and redware auction.

David Parr Pottery (Baltimore, MD Stoneware Potter, circa 1812-32)

Luke talks about David Parr, one of the most influential American stoneware potters, and one most collectors have probably never heard of.
