In New Jersey, eighteenth century potteries operated in places like South Amboy, Ringoes, and Trenton, and this early work is highly prized by stoneware collectors. The later work of potters like Warne & Letts (with their iconic "Liberty Forev[er]" jugs) and other Middlesex County potters has likewise been long-treasured as an important part of our American ceramic history. Eventually New Jersey stoneware makers--like Fulper in Flemington--would embrace the trends of New York State and New England potters, producing straight-sided vessels adorned with floral designs, birds, and script advertising for local merchants. (Though rare, signed or attributable New Jersey redware is also highly valued by collectors and is included amongst our stoneware highlights above.)
