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.)

Antique New Jersey Stoneware Jar / Crock with Stamped Woman Design

Mark talks about perhaps the finest example of this beloved group of New Jersey stoneware with impressed designs--an unusually small jar with a fine design of a woman's profile, which we have never seen before. It will be sold as part of our March 2, 2013 stoneware & redware pottery auction.

Circa 1750 New Jersey Stoneware Jar, Kemple Pottery, Ringoes, NJ

Mark discusses an important new discovery in American utilitarian ceramics: a very early colonial American stoneware jar made by the Kemple family in Ringoes, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. It will be sold as part of our November 3, 2012 stoneware auction.
