Manufacturer Clifton Art Pottery American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

The Arts and Crafts Movement saw great popularity among artists and makes for Native American crafts. New Jersey’s Clifton Pottery responded to that taste by initiating a line of Indian ware with shapes derived from archaeological forms and decoration, such as seen on this stirrup jug. That “Arkansas” was incised on the underside of the jug indicates that its source was an original one made by a Native American tribe in Arkansas.
