Unusual American redware coffee pot, attributed to Thomas Haig, Philadelphia, circa 1830. Ht. 11". Condition: Chips to spout; small rim chip to cover and rim of pot. This pot was part of Haig's attempt to replicate and compete with English refined black glazed earthenware imported to the States. This production is discussed in Meyers, Susan, Handcraft to Industry pg. 12-14 (1980) fig. 6 illustrating a black glazed teapot attributed to Haig in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This teapot has similar rouletted bands as the coffee pot. Also, the turned ring foot is the same type as this coffee pot.
