Ceramic and Pottery Collection


 Ginger Jar, tobacco spit glaze

Diversity in type and function is the strength of this collection that includes handmade and manufactured pottery and ceramic ware. From utilitarian pieces, like crocks, jugs and bowls, to transferwareware, fine china, commemorative objects and decorative forms, the collection provides examples from the late 18th century through today. 

A significant collection of Piedmont North Carolina pottery includes the Bluethenthal Jugtown Collection.
