HELP! What kind of pottery is this? ...and a GIVEAWAY!

I just repainted my dining area, and I love it! I'm always eyeing dining sets, and maybe someday I'll have one like this! Isn't it pretty??
But, until I can replace my seen-better-days-before-two-toddlers-with-spaghetti-o's garage sale table and mismatched chairs, I'll just be happy with my paint job facelift!

Now, here's where I need your help! Please!

I really like the border in my dining area, which was put up by the previous owners (I like them, too). ;-)

We have plans to redo/finish my kitchen next year and I'd like to pull out the blue from the pottery. I'd also like to start collecting some of this pottery/stoneware to decorate my kitchen with.


Soo, what is it? It's hard to google something when you're not exactly sure what it's called. So far I've gotten salt-glazed pottery and New England stoneware. But, not all of it has the blue on it (which I like).

And, where can I find it? Although that might be solved once I know what it's called!

For reading this far...and helping me out, I'm so excited to announce another fantastic giveaway from CSN Stores!!

GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Want to WIN IT? One winner will receive a $70 gift certificate, valid at 200+ CSN Stores! To enter, give me a clue about my pottery OR visit CSN Stores and tell me how you'd spend your gift certificate! For additional entries (must do above to qualify for extra entries!),

It's just called stoneware... You can find it in LOTS of antique shops in New England. The cobalt blue is the most common color, so you should be able to find it no problem. I have several old jugs scattered around my house. I love it too!

I think you're in the North East (?) but if not, you can probably find reproductions of it at craft fairs or online. If I see some, I send you a link!

Sorry I don't know the name of the ceramic you're looking for...coincidentally I would choose something ceramic if I won the giveaway-I love the "hot tamale" ceramic pitcher but there are dozens of things that I would have to decide between :)

Melissa said...

The pottery reminds me of this stoneware pitcher http://cgi.ebay.com/Stoneware-Pitcher-Jug-Vintage-Antique-/380272938459?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588a088ddb

or this one (from J.W. McCoy Pottery Co or Brush-McCoy Pottery Co.)
