Ohio stoneware has really come into its own over the last decade or so. A large state absolutely filled with potters, Ohio's stoneware shows a large variety of influences, as potters who had worked in the eastern states migrated westward looking for work or a new start. The vast number of stoneware potters working in Ohio have left a lot of room for research into barely-documented or even currently unknown potteries, whose work surfaces on a fairly regular basis. Other Midwestern stoneware tends to take on a similar appearance to that made in the Buckeye State. (Also see our many Anna Pottery Highlights, made by the Kirkpatrick Brothers in Anna, Illinois.)

Important Antique Ohio Stoneware Inkstand

Brandt discusses a remarkable, exceedingly rare (and complete) stoneware inkstand bearing the inscription OHIO and an 1829 date. Almost unheard-of in American stoneware, this is one of the more important pieces of antique utilitarian Ohio pottery to surface in some time. It will be sold as part of our first stoneware & redware pottery auction of 2013, to be held March 2.
