Jar, probably Greenport Pottery, New York, ca. 1819. Lead-glazed earthenware daubed with manganese oxide. H. 9". (All photos, Gavin Ashworth.) This jar was found in a home within one mile of the former Greenport Pottery, located on Sterling Street in Greenport, New York, on Long Island’s North Fork.
Detail of the handle attachment for the jar illustrated in fig. 1. Note how the pulled handle comes in contact with the neck of the jar.
Jar fragments, probably originating from a jar identical to the one illustrated in fig. 1. These sherds were found among large amounts of redware fragments located under an eighteenth-century home located directly adjacent to the Greenport Pottery site.
