    By Janine E. Skerry and Suzanne Findlen Hood

    "A must-have volume for all ceramic enthusiasts, Salt-glazed Stoneware in Early America is a long-overdue tribute to the often-neglected but indispensable role that stoneware played in the American context." - Robert Hunter, editor, Ceramics in America

    Stoneware was ubiquitous in colonial and early American homes. In the first comprehensive book on the topic, Colonial Williamsburg curators Janine E. Skerry and Suzanne Findlen Hood chronicle the traditions of stoneware imported from England and Germany as well as the work of American potters.

    Drawing on archaeological and documentary sources and featuring objects from Colonial Williamsburg's holdings as well as public and private collections, the book provides an invaluable overview of the goods found in early America. It is an essential reference for archaeologists, curators, and collectors.
