Salt glazed stoneware was produced by potters in the mid-19th century. This piece is turned on the potter’s wheel, decorated and glazed by hand and fired in one of the on-site kilns. Genesee Country Village & Museum is one of the last living history museums in the country to fire salt glazed stoneware in a wood fueled kiln. All glazes are lead free and perfectly suited for everyday kitchen use (oven and dishwasher safe) as well as a striking decorative piece for your home.
Shop One partners with Genesee Country Village & Museum to bring this beautiful handmade piece, made in an historic and genuine potter’s shed on the grounds of GCV&M to you.

The 600 acre museum includes the Historic Village, the John L. Wehle Gallery and the Genesee Country Nature Center; all of which provide living context for the telling of New York State and 19th century American history.
Chartered as an educational institution by the NYS Board of Regents, the museum offers opportunities to see, smell, taste, touch, explore and experience 68 historic buildings, 20,000 artifacts, wildlife paintings, drawings and sculpture spanning centuries. Together with the living collections in the gardens, a working farm and Nature Center - all are nestled in the gorgeous landscape that first brought settlers to this region.
