Learn about Western New York State Redware (1800-1860)
A program on Western New York redware (1800-1860) will be presented by the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes on Thursday, May 25, 2023 at 7:00 pm at the Geneva History Museum, 543 S. Main Street, Geneva. The meeting is free and open to the public.
The presentation will focus on utilitarian wares produced in Western New York State during the first half of the 19th century. The speaker, Gene Pratt, has collected redware over the past 40 years with a special focus on Western New York pottery. Both he and his wife, Nancy, are members of the Genesee Country Antique Dealers Association and exhibit at local and national shows.
Gene will discuss some history of the industry and details of several well known potters along with a “show and tell” of pottery examples from each of the better known potters.
The Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes is in its 48th year of programming. Meetings are free and open to the public, but membership is welcome and encouraged at $10 per year. Programs include meetings at the Geneva History Museum, field trips and social events. See our Facebook page for more news.
