Galena Rim Paperwhite Pot with Attached Saucer
Please select all options.
This style of rim was done by potters near the northwestern Illinois town of Galena, and by surrounding areas of southwestern Wisconsin in the 1860's. Many of the 19th century immigrants to the area were from Cornwall, England. The ornamented rims of their flower pots were similar to ornamented rims made by their cousins in Cornwall.
The flourishes of the Galena rim are a decorative departure from the 19th century potter's usual production of utilitarian crocks and jugs.

Soda Fired pots are vitreous stoneware, fired to 2350° F. (1288° C ) They can be used indoors or outdoors. Although stoneware is waterproof, condensation can form after watering. Do not set watered pot directly onto any surface that could be marred by moisture. For longest life in use outdoors, store indoors when temperatures are below freezing.
