WORLD AUCTION RECORD: M & T MILLER STONEWARE

11/04/2006

While Central Pennsylvania stoneware is most known for the finer wares of potters like Cowden & Wilcox in Harrisburg--whose work is primarily influenced by New York State stoneware of the time period--other potters making cruder, often Baltimore-influenced ware were also working in locales like Newville (Cumberland County) and Huntingdon. This selection of highlights includes the World Auction Record for a piece of Central PA stoneware (which we set in 2006 with a Newport, Perry County, birdhouse made by brothers M & T Miller), many very strong Cowden prices, and what is probably the World Auction Record for a piece of Huntingdon County, PA stoneware (a Hissong, Cassville, PA presentation pitcher).
