Wildflower Stenciled Stoneware

Made from the same clay and many times by the same potter as the Embossed and Spongeware pieces, these pieces were decorated by placing a stencil on the piece of pottery and applying a Blue Decoration over a White (Bristol) glaze. Probably the most popular decoration among collectors is the "Wildflower" pattern seen below, but many other patterns were stenciled onto this stoneware including "Snowflake", "Cows", and "Dutch Scene" patterns.
