From the "People Crocks" of Morgantown--today considered masterworks of American folk art--to the work of A.P. Donaghho in Parkersburg, the work of West Virginia's stoneware potters closely parallels that of the southwestern Pennsylvanians. The work of the Thompson family in Morgantown, who produced the aforementioned vessels adorned with people in various interesting scenes, is heavily represented amongst our previous auction highlights of West Virginia stoneware.
