Southern Pottery Auction Highlights


Dave (Enslaved Potter of Edgefield, SC) Stoneware Jar, December 17, 1857

WORLD AUCTION RECORD: "DAVE" STONEWARE (Signed Stoneware by the Enslaved Potter, David Drake)


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.
