Next Auction of American Stoneware & Redware: March 21, 2020


We are the world's leading auction of American stoneware and redware, and have sold well over $13,000,000 worth of American pottery in the past 5 years alone. While we have been selling stoneware since 1983, 2004 marked our first foray into the auction world when we held our inaugural Auction of American Stoneware & Redware that year.

Over the course of our first fifteen years, we have broken almost every significant auction record for American stoneware, including the World Auction Record at $483,000 in October 2015, eclipsing our preview highest price of $402,500.

The market for quality American stoneware and redware is stronger than ever! This was evident in our recent (July 20, 2019) auction, in which we saw a new World Auction Record for an American Face Vessel reached at $177,000! We would be more than happy to discuss your pottery with you for possible inclusion in our Spring 2020 auction. We offer a Free Pre-Auction Evaluation of your pieces and will give you a fair, honest assessment of your pottery. Please contact us for additional information and take advantage of our proven track record, respected expertise, and the world's largest customer base for stoneware and redware.

Our commission remains as low as 12.5% to the seller--one of the very lowest rates you will find in the entire country for the unsurpassed services we provide.

Auction Time

Our next auction will be held March 21 at our historic gallery. Our auctions start at 10am (Eastern time). (Doors open at 8am.)

An auction preview, during which you can view and handle every lot in the sale, will take place Friday, 3/20, from 1-6pm.

You can also preview all of the items from 8-10 am on Saturday, before the auction.


We produce both a Print Catalog (regarded as one of the best the field has to offer, and a valued resource on American stoneware & redware), as well as a free Online Catalog (through which you can also conveniently leave absentee bids). Each becomes available about two weeks before each auction.
