07/17/2004
The stoneware production styles of New York State mirrored that of New England: potters began with an aesthetic reminiscent of the New York City potters, then moved toward finer, straight-sided forms adorned with bright cobalt designs. These decorations could range from simple floral designs to wild decorations of animals or even more unusual subject matter. You will see this progression in our highlights above, as the early, often incised work of potters like the Boyntons and Paul Cushman in Albany was supplanted by brushed and slip-trailed decoration. At the risk of excluding other important names, a few key potters / potteries from this later period include John Burger (and son) of Rochester, the White family of Utica, New York Stoneware Company in Fort Edward, Riedinger and Caire in Poughkeepsie, Thompson Harrington of Lyons, A.O. Whittemore of Havana (now Montour Falls), William H. Farrar of Geddes, Madison Woodruff in Cortland, Charles Braun in Buffalo, Samuel Hart in Fulton, and William MacQuoid in Manhattan. Signed New York State redware is very rare, and you will see a few very fine examples represented here, as well.

Antique North Bay, New York, Stoneware

Brandt discusses the fairly rare pottery of John C. Waelde from North Bay, NY, made around the third quarter of the 19th century. This is probably the finest grouping of North Bay stoneware ever to be included in a single auction, and it will all be offered as part of our November 2, 2013 auction of American stoneware & redware pottery.

Exceptional Group of Antique Stoneware Bird Crocks

Mark talks about some fantastic examples of stoneware crocks bearing decorations, which we will be selling (along with many other bird-decorated pieces) in our November 2, 2013 Auction of American Stoneware & Redware. This sale features over 600 lots of American utilitarian pottery.

John Burger (Rochester, NY) Antique Stoneware Water Cooler

Mark talks about a rare water cooler by esteemed Rochester, New York, stoneware potter John Burger, and discusses why Burger is considered one of the very best decorators American stoneware had to offer. This cooler will be sold as part of our March 2, 2013 stoneware and redware pottery auction.

Miniature Antique New York State Stoneware Incised Bird Churn

Mark talks about a very fine example of antique New York stoneware--a miniature churn with an incised bird and floral motif. It will be sold as part of our March 2, 2013 stoneware auction.

Early Albany, New York, Stoneware (Paul Cushman and the Boynton Brothers)

Mark discusses three early Albany stoneware pieces we will be selling on March 2, 2013, as part of our first stoneware & redware auction of the year: an excellent small-sized keg or rundlet, probably made by Jonah or Calvin Boynton, as well as two Paul Cushman examples. Besides a squat-shaped jar bearing coggled designs, one features the highly desirable and rare HALF A MILE WEST OF ALBANY GOAL (sic for GAOL / jail]) mark.

Exceptional Antique Stoneware Horse Crock

Mark discusses a Fort Edward, New York, stoneware crock with one of the more elaborate figural designs you will see on American stoneware. To be sold March 3, 2012.

Antique New York Stoneware Four-Handled Jug

Mark talks about an elaborately-decorated, large-sized flower pot made by William E. Warner in West Troy (now Watervliet), New York. This outstanding example of antique New York stoneware will be sold in our March 3, 2012 auction.
