Yellowware Pottery

So named because of its light clay base and surface hues, yellowware can range in color from buff to a deep yellow. For feel and composition it occupies a middle ground between the more course redware and the more refined earthenware or stoneware. It was manufactured mostly in kitchen ware pieces by numerous potteries throughout the country, with important production centers in New Jersey and Ohio.
