Two pieces Southwest Virginia Stoneware pottery. 1st item: Virginia stoneware storage jar, 1 gallon capacity mark and "E.W. MORT/ALUM WELLS VA" rectangular stamp mark to the shoulder. 10" H. 2nd item: Virginia stoneware jug, 1 gallon capacity mark and "E.W. MORT/ALUM WELLS VA" rectangular stamp mark to the shoulder. 10 3/4" H. Both items late 19th century. Edward William Mort (1853-1923) was born in Strasburg, VA and possibly trained as a potter in this area. In addition to working with Washington County, Virginia potters, other crocks stamped "E.W. Mort Mohawk" suggest he may have also worked in Greene Co., TN for a period of time. Mort ceased making pottery in 1893 and became a Methodist minister. CONDITION: Both pieces overall excellent condition.
