#6 Galena Triple Rim, Red Terra Cotta
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.
