William Warner advertised wares such as this flower pot as "extra glazed fancy ware." Made from stoneware clay and covered with a rich brown glaze, Warner's fancy ware imitated fashionable slip cast earthenwares. In addition to making pottery, Warner dealt in clay and sand. The reference to "Morgan's clay" in Warner's mark advertises his stock of desirable stoneware clay from South Amboy, NJ.
