The antique utilitarian pottery of the Southern United States is as varied as the states themselves, but Southern stoneware is often associated with the green / brown alkaline glazes that coat much of the work of these potters. Even so, finely-made redware vessels often bearing elaborate designs or colorful glazes and salt-glazed stoneware were also produced throughout the South. (For Virginia pottery, see our Virginia Stoneware and Shenandoah Valley Pottery auction highlights.)
