WORLD AUCTION RECORD, PHILADELPHIA STONEWARE

03/14/2015

The story of the Remmey potters in America begins circa 1730, when Johannes Remmi emigrated from Germany to Manhattan, and immediately began making stoneware in the German style alongside the Crolius family. His offspring would, as a group, become the most prominent family of American stoneware potters, with important shops in not only New York City, but Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other locales. This group of our auction highlights includes some of their masterworks, and demonstrates the enormous capabilities of this famous American potting family.
