Stoneware, Lidded Jar, Sgraffito Decoration, Brownware
Probably Fort Edward, New York, Circa 1890's

This brown glazed stoneware jar is closely related to another piece of Fort Edward stoneware that is inscribed "Julia Soper" and is discussed on page 255 of Potters and Potteries of New York State 1650 - 1900 by William Ketchum, Jr. An old jelly label within the "Kingsley Soper" jar attributes this piece to Troy, New York.
