VINTAGE POTTERY JAR OYSTER POWELL BRISTOL STONEWARE - #3189





VINTAGE POTTERY JAR OYSTER POWELL BRISTOL STONEWARE
Item Code : 3189

Stoneware is a type of pottery fired to a very high temperature; above 1200-1400 degrees Celsius. The high temperature vitrifies the clay so that even in an unglazed state it is watertight. This was a big step forward as pottery fired to a lower temperature had to be thoroughly glazed to ensure it was watertight. Unglazed stoneware was made in China around 2000 years ago and was invented independently in Germany in the 13th century but its manufacture was not introduced into Britain until the early 17th century.
Stoneware is used for a variety of uses including decorative ornaments, figurines and tableware but it is obviously well suited to the transportation and storage of liquids such as beer, wine, vinegar and mineral water. As a result it was used by grocers, wine and beer dealers, brewers and landlords to store and sell their products. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to advertise themselves and their products the names and addresses of the traders were often stamped into or transferred onto the jugs and bottles.

Powell, (1780-1906),
Bristol, England occurs on 3 bottle, Show distribution map of bottles with the Powell mark Put bottles made by Powell on a shelf
Manufactured beer bottles. The Powells were producing pottery starting about 1780 and were the second largest manufactures of stoneware bottles in Britain in 1900. William Powell invented a new form of glazing that consisted of a cream colored body and tan colored top later known as a "Bristol Glaze." The Powells merged with Price, Sons & Company and the firm became Price, Powell & Company in 1906 and operated under that name until 1961. The impression appears near the base of the bottle.
