Food Processing


Pottery during the 18th and 19th century was often made out of the local clay known as redware. Many jugs, bowls, cups, porringers, and crocks were made from this clay. Redware, because of its porous nature, requires the pieces to be glazed. The yellow wave design that is pictured is the result of white slip changing colors after being glazed and fired.

Other Food Processing artifacts that can be found in the museum: antique butter molds, butter churn, animal bone handles, antique hand forced toaster, and berry scoop.
