New Acquisition: Decorative Stoneware

Decorative Stoneware

Since 1996, Adam Weitsman has donated over 500 pieces of decorated stoneware to the New York State Museum.  While only a portion of these are on view in the galleries, this collection receives lots of attention from researchers and other museums requesting loans.  Here are two new pieces recently added to the collection. 

 

Four gallon crock with cover, T. Harrington, Lyons, NY; decorated with a prancing stag in a wooded landscape, ca. 1860.
