Have a couple pieces I cant identify. Can anyone help me out?

Yes that is where the glaze is worn on the inside showing the red clay. The one on the left has a small wear spot also that shows the same red clay color. I have a few more that I will post tomorrow.

The crock did come from an auction where there were many german/french antiques.

Your Welcome Brian! The one on the right, does it have wear to the interior glaze? If so, yes that is redware. That is what one would typically see in a redware piece.

It's very hard to determine on your second one on the left - The bases look to be burnt pretty well? Can you try and get a better shot of the base on that one - on the left? We need to see the clay to be certain. :)

Thanks for the info. I kind of had my doubts about the crock. The bottom always gave me the impression of it being some type of redware clay. I am aware of the glaze color not determining the clay type.  Now this I am pretty sure is Redware. What do you think.

Hi Brian, Your base in fact is not Redware - it is Yellow ware. The redware clay is very different. Although I agree I've not seen that color glaze before. It could be EU/UK in origin.

Most USA Yellow Ware comes from the Ohio River Valley. And your clay does look very much like theirs, but it is very unusual. :)

Here's a link for Redware, so you can see the difference:


It is the color of the Clay, not the glaze that determines what kind of stoneware you have. Take a good look at the bases in the first set of pics - they appear almost black.

I posted this in another forum also without knowing about this. Anyway here is usual double handled Redware crock. The bottom shows the redware clay. You can see on the bottom where it was cut from the wheel with a wire. The glaze color in one I have not seen also. Info comments would be appreciated.10 inch tall 8 wide.
