The well-developed songbird on this pot also graces the sides of several other known vessels, as does the flower, although with more variations than the bird. Some flowers look exactly like this example; others more closely resemble daisies. Stoneware with these decorative motifs appears most frequently in the upper Hudson Valley and were probably the products of an Albany potter. Additional comments
