Please Help Identify Early American Pottery Mark

by Kim
(McAlisterville, PA, USA)



I have a "tankard" that I purchased at a local estate sale. When I purchased it, I was told it was a Weller piece. I listed it on Ebay and got a message from someone informing me it was instead a JB Owens early circa from the 1800s.


It does have a JB on the bottom, as well as a number, but I just assumed it was the artists initials... well guess it was! But JB Owens. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much, Kim B.

Provenance of Tankard NEW
by: Councilpg@advgeosci.com

It was made by J.B. Owens of Zanesville Ohio circa ~1900. The line name is commonly called Lightweight due to the lighter clay used in this pottery line. The mold number is 819 and it is also illustrated in Frank Hahn's book (Collector's Guide to Owens Pottery, 1996) on page 58 item #69. It was sold as a tankard set with the mugs illustrated on page 59 item #77 with a mold number of 830. The mugs are common while the large tankards are not (i.e. due to their large size and weight they were likely broken long before the matching mugs were). The sets usually had either 4, 6 or 8 mugs to the tankard with both right and left handed mugs included in a set (i.e. art work of the left of the handle where right handled mugs and art work to the right of the handle were left handled mugs. Art work on Lightweight was done by Owens best artists and is as good or better than most Rookwood Standard Glaze pieces.
