Old Sturbridge Village Handmade Redware Pottery Pottle
What is a Pottle? Literally a container that holds half gallon of liquid. This super-sized mug is great for a large tankard of beer or ale but could also be used for a vase on your kitchen table. Made by the talented potters at Old Sturbridge Village using techniques and designs from our historic collection. Skilled craftspeople create each piece of redware pottery at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts.
Annual Wood Firing in our Historic Kiln: Once a year, our potters fire up our historic wood fired kiln to create LIMITED EDITION pieces. This pottery item has been created by hand but is then placed in the wood fed kiln for the final step creating a deeper, richer color with variations to the glaze. Located outside the Old Sturbridge Village potters shed, the large, reproduction brick “updraft bottle” kiln is used once a year for firing pots. Visit OSV.org to see details on our kiln.
