Savannah Picker finds Antique Southern Pottery Jar

By John | We Buy American Pottery

We bought this North Carolina stoneware jar from a Savannah picker. Here are some tips for picking southern pottery that you can sell to us.

Based on the color and glaze this most likely came form North Carolina or Georgia. It has some stylistic features of Isaac Lefever (1831-1864) who was a Lincoln County potterr. The maker of this storage jar may have studied under Lefever. Here’s an example of a signed Lefever piece on the website.

We are avid buyers of southern antique pottery. Contact us if you have old southern pottery you want to sell.

Thomas Ritchie Pottery Jar from Catawba County NC

By John | We Buy American Pottery

We were pleased to buy this jug when a Florida picker called.

Thomas Ritchie (1825-1909) Signed T R and stamped 2, with an unbeatable, high-fired ash glaze and a high neck with three deep score lines under a bold collar that flares out to the spout. The loop handle is high and ribbon-like in movement. These characteristics of the jug that I have noted are shared with early American stoneware examples.

A sought after Catawba County, North Carolina potter.

Valuable Chandler Maker Pottery from Edgefield, SC found in Daytona, FL Toolshed

By John | We Buy American Pottery

We bought this Chandler crock from a teacher who is a “picker” on the side. She offered to help a friend with an estate. She knew by looking at the bottom this was an old piece of pottery. A quick search identified it as Edgefield, South Carolina pottery. The crock was in perfect condition. We were thrilled when she called us; we paid her four figures for it.
