SW001 Wilkinson - Kingston CW

Minimum Bid: $4000

Range:$6000-8000

Sold: $6000

A monumental 6 gal G.M. Wilkinson Kingston Canada West churn. Made by the Skinner pottery in Picton. This churn has one of the most elaborate and unique tree designs that we have ever seen. This is an imposing piece, standing 18" tall, with a wide body. When we got this churn it was banded across the base to keep it together. There was some heavy cracking at rear. We had this churn professionally restored and the result is striking. The piece always displayed near mint from the front, but now the cracks at rear are well stabilized and touched-up so they are not noticeable. Absolutely one of the best Picton pieces we have ever offered. A standout churn in any Canadian pottery collection. Note we will not ship this piece; arrangements should be made for pick-up or drop-off.

SW002 Moses Farrar St. Johns LC

Minimum Bid: $3000

Range:$5000-6000

Sold: $4550

For the past few years, we have had the pleasure of selling a number of pieces from the Maurice Richer Collection. Maurice is the authority on early Quebec pottery, having published two books on the subject. This incredible 3 gal ovoid jug from Moses Farrar St. Johns Lower Canada was among his very best. Moses Farrar Lower Canada marked pieces are extremely rare and most are found damaged. There are no decorated pieces known with this mark, only plain forms. This ovoid jug has a beautiful exaggerated ovoid shape. The base is just 5 1/4" in diameter. 15 1/4" tall. This jug was made to serve a a cooler and it is the only such cooler we have ever seen. Truly a unique form. Near mint with just some minor glaze crazing on the neck and around where the handle meets the mouth. As clean as the day it was made. This jug was made between 1839-1841. Incredible that it survived in such perfect condition! A museum grade piece.

SW003 Burnham - Toronto UC

Minimum Bid: $3000

Range:$4000-5000

Current Bid: DNMR

Upper Canada marked crocks are incredibly rare. We have never sold one. Finding any marked Canadian pottery from this period (pre-1842) is near impossible. Most of the pottery used at that early time was either imported or plain and unmarked. This 1/2 gal jug from Silas Burnham Toronto UC is a remarkable piece. Silas Burnham was listed in the 1833 York, UC Directory as living on Richmond St. with his "General Store" at 67 King St. In 1834, fire destroyed his premises, and he was mentioned as a "wholesale and retail merchant." The building was rebuilt, and he was listed again in 1836, still at 67 King St. The Toronto assessment rolls note him there until 1839. In 1840 the building was empty. Silas ended up leaving Upper Canada (apparently as a result of being accused of fraud) and died in 1849 in Indiana. York was renamed Toronto in 1834, so this jug likely dates from 1834 to 1839.A fresh to market piece in amazing condition. Near mint with a couple of minor 1/4" imperfections on the base edge. Albany style slip glaze with a great metallic finish. The incised mark is light but legible. An investment grade piece of early Canadian stoneware.

SW005 Brown - Strathroy

Minimum Bid: $750

Range:$1200-1500

Sold: $1200

Thomas Brown operated a small earthenware pottery in Strathroy Ontario in the 1880s. Either his production was quite limited or he marked very few pieces because marked examples are extremely rare. I have seen only a handful and always simple forms in a dark brown glaze. The T. Brown crock in this sale is something quite exceptional. A notice for the pottery shown in Newland's Early Ontario Potters (pg. 185) advertises Brown's "White Stone Enamelled" ware. Clearly an imitation of the stoneware that would have been choking the market at the time. Brown coated this redware jug in a milky coloured glaze, then added a flower in a sepia colour. The stamp is barely legible, but a rubbing shows it is most definitely Brown's mark. This jug is about half full of dried oil. There is heavy spaulding from the left side base all around the back, probably from sitting in a damp cellar. Despite this damage, the piece is stable, solid and looks great. Lip and handle are near mint with only minor imperfections. The area around the stamp and decoration are clean. A unique piece of T. Brown Strathroy pottery.

SW006 Farrar & Soule - St. Johns

Minimum Bid: $750

Range:$1200-1500

Sold: $750

When Moses Farrar opened his pottery in St. Johns Lower Canada in 1839 he was in partnership with Warren Soule. For reasons unknown, the earliest St. Johns pieces do not bear Soule's name. At some point in the 1840s, this changed and the firm began marking their wares: Farrar & Soule St. Johns. This mark would have been used for maybe a decade, before Moses Farrar reverted back to using his name alone. Crocks bearing the Farrar & Soule mark are exceedingly rare. I know of only one decorated example, the others are plain early forms. This 2 gal cream crock is a gorgeous and rare example bearing both names. Remarkable condition. Some minor flaking to the sharp mouth edge, No cracking. Great body. Quite possibly the original lid. I have only ever seen a handful of Farrar & Soule marked crocks with this being one of (if not the) best.

SW007 Moses Farar - St. Johns

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $400

In the early 1850s, Moses Farrar reverted for a short time to using only his name on his ware. The partnership of Farrar & Soule was still active in 1851 and by 1854 Moses was potting with Ebenezer Lawrence Farrar. My guess is that these Moses Farar pieces were made between 1852-54, which would account for the extreme scarcity of the mark. The crock in this sale is a 1/2 gal size, 6 5/8" tall and 6" in diameter across the base. Excellent condition. Super fine hairline cracks criss-cross the base. Light wear to the lip edge. Great glaze with visible finger prints. An extremely rare and early St. Johns crock in a great small size.

SW008 Picton CW (Skinner tree)

Minimum Bid: $750

Range:$1200-1500

Sold: $750

A beautiful 1 gal cream crock with a Skinner tree covering the face. It is unusual to see crocks marked just Picton CW. This crock had a bad crack in the front across the face which we had professionally restored. The repair is excellent as you can see from the photos. Painted green at one time and there remain some speckles of paint mostly at the back of the piece. A great form and small size to find with this rare tree design. The tree itself is a particularly nice example of the design.

SW009 Burns - Markham

Minimum Bid: $600

Range:$1000-1200

Sold: Not

In 19th century Canada (and elsewhere in the Commonwealth) pottery figurines in the form of a spaniel were very popular. This was a show of patriotism as the dogs were owned by the royal family. Most often, people would put a pair of them on the mantle and they were purely for display. These figurines were a fad in Canada and many potteries made them. This particular King Charles Spaniel was made by the Samuel Burns pottery in Markham Ontario. This one is made as a bank and has a slot in the head for coins. 9" tall. While not marked, this piece can be solidly attributed to Burns as pieces of these dogs were excavated onsite. See colour plate pg. 12 in Daniel Webster's Early Canadian Pottery. This example is unglazed and may have been made this way so it could be painted. It was painted green at some point in its life and the paint has been carefully removed, leaving only small traces. Absolutely mint condition, which is remarkable given its fragile form and use as a bank.

SW010 Redware Churn

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $500

If you collect Canadian redware, you don't have a churn in your collection. While thousands of redware churns were no doubt made by small potteries, they did not survive heavy use. This redware churn is a rare and beautiful survivor. A remarkable piece not just by its very existence, but equally for its beautiful form and glaze. Remarkable condition. Solid with no cracking. Some minor chipping to the handle edges. Great character to the glaze. Lid is a darker tone, but I would say it is the original. Lid is in excellent condition with some minor thin flakes. Comes with what appears to be its original wood dasher.

SW011 Sloan - Galt

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $400

This large size pitcher is marked John Sloan. Though not indicated on the piece, Sloan was a merchant in Galt, Ontario. The pitcher is likely a product of the Brantford potteries. The size of this piece is impressive, easily two gallons and standing 11" tall. Professional restoration to a 2" long thin section of the rim on the right side. An incredibly good job that I could only see with a blacklight. DIsplays mint. Note the handprints. One full across the front base beneath the signature. Another partial handprint coming up from the base under the handle. Incredible this piece survived in such excellent condition. A terrific looking piece of pottery on the shelf!.

SW012 Esinhart - Laprairie

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $400

Something I love about antiques is that new finds are constantly being made. In this auction, we have a few highly unusual and rare pieces of pottery. This is one. A 2 gal butter crock from Andree Esinhart of Laprairie Quebec. Laprairie is now a cartier in Montreal. Seven lines of writing in mixed font. A decoration in heavy blue the likes of which I have never seen. A fern or a fiddlehead? An early St. Johns Quebec made crock for sure, but by what hand? My guess would be Ballard, but it is just a guess. This crock is solid and looks great, but has some damage and restoration. A heavy potstone in the top right of the decoration caused cracking up to the rim and around back under the right handle. Light spaulding at the back. Right handle has been professionally replaced. Heavy rub on the edge of this repair. 7" hairline left side. Condition report sounds way worse than the piece deserves. Let the photos be your guide. This is an exceptional piece of Quebec merchant stoneware and has a really impressive look to it.

This Douglas & King cooler from Winnipeg is a rare crock, with only a handful of examples known. Not marked, but likely Medalta-made. There are Redwing-made examples but this one is quite different.

Never saw when when we were doing the book.

This cream crock is in very good condition on the exterior. Potstone front above the stamp. Another at the rear in the rim. There is heavy spaulding on the inside. Despite the spaulding, this piece is stable and solid. Rings true. If you collect rare potter's marks, you will look a long time to find one better.

The heavy 4" line at front is a touch mark, from where the jug touched another piece in the kiln. There are a couple of areas around the mouth and handle that are unglazed. A scarce Wagner piece.

A 1/2 gal size jar from Tilt & Hedges St. Pauls Church Yard. An early London jar from around 1820-50. 7 1/2" tall. Near mint. The writing is a bit faint, but perfectly legible. There is a felt pad glued to the bottom of this jar. I believe the piece is mint. Photo added that shows the inside, which is pristine.
