WORLD AUCTION RECORDS: SOUTHERN POTTERY, POTTERY BY DAVE, AFRICAN-AMERICAN STONEWARE

03-21-2020

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.
