active in the Valley 1814 - 1822 (Christian Adam)


Date: ca. 1813 - 1835

Christian and Jacob Adam were brothers. Jacob Adam purchased a New Market pottery from brother-in-law John Brouse in 1811. Jacob worked in New Market but left the area in the 1820s. He sold his half of the New Market pottery to George and Jonas Bodell in 1837. Christian Adam had already moved from the area by then. The pronounced rim of this vase is associated with both these Adam brothers. Not surprisingly, it is also associated with the work of John and Andrew Coffman, their apprentices.
