Commonly referred to as American Stoneware, this style of pottery was produced most notably in New York in the 1900's. These pieces were often glazed using a technique called salt-glazing, which was a process of throwing salt in the kiln during the highest temperature peak. This would provide a glossy, translucent, orange-peel like texture. Creators could also include different oxides to give the glaze a brown, blue or purple colour. This jug was made using the Albany Slip style of glazing. The piece would be dipped in a mixture of clay from a specific area of the Upper Hudson Region of New York. Once fired at a high temperature, it would produce a dark brown glaze. This was also often done on the inside of pieces that had been salt-glazed on the exterior.
