Antique William Hare Crock - Wilmington, Delaware Potter

$199.95Price

This is a rare and wonderful mid 19th century William Hare crock that is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips on it. William Hare is the only known Delaware potter to mark his wares and this one is very clearly marked with his name and place of business. William Hare came to Wilmington in 1837. He purchased an existing pottery shop on French Street and remained there through 1885. His life and pottery are currently being studied by the Delaware State Museum.

My Living Room 2018

My tastes in furniture and antiques are taking me earlier into our past and my living room right now my favorite room in my home. That grain painted wardrobe that you can see in this picture will soon be replaced by an 18th century highboy that I fell in love with while up in New England a few months ago.
