Connecticut Stoneware & Redware Auction Highlights

Connecticut pottery is headlined here by a piece of stoneware that, at the time, sold for the highest price we had ever achieved: a memorial jug made for a potter who drowned in Norwich harbor, which had recently been discovered in a closet in California. (That amount, $138,000, has since been eclipsed by a factor of ten, demonstrating how positively the market has changed over the last decade or so.) Here you will find beautiful redware produced in Norwalk, often adorned with wonderful slogans; mixed with fantastic Hartford stoneware pieces; great early stoneware by Abraham Mead (Greenwich); and a number of gemels, double jugs that for some reason the New Haven stoneware potters favored.
