We’re celebrating Americana!
The great American symbol – the bald eagle is found in almost every Americana collection. The image in this pattern was inspired by that on an American Stoneware jug.
American Stoneware is a specific type of salt glazed pottery that was popular during the late 18th– early 19th centuries. It has been described as the “tupperware” of the era. The familiar white stoneware crockery was painted with designs of cobalt blue before firing. Eagles, stylized florals, houses, even Lincoln and his wife were painted in a folk art style on the pots before firing.
