Salt-glazed stoneware jug with impressed maker's mark and decorated with a cobalt blue flower.
The Mantell pottery was established by John Campbell early in the ninteenth century, the business being afterward taken over by James Mantell, wo is said to have brought his clay from New Jersey. This jug was made during the partnership of James Mantell and Shem Thomas, who worked together from 1854-1856. James Mantell employed a traveling salesman named Ezra Warren, who peddled stoneware throughout Penn Yan and neighboring towns from a horse and wagon.
