Unknown English Maker (, - present)

These two pitchers, one English, the other made in America, illustrate the influences that English potters had on the fledgling pottery business in America. Staffordshire potters came to America as mold makers, glazers, potters, and technicians. They brought the English potting traditions with them, and often brought their molds as well.
