Annular Ware

Annular ware is wheel thrown earthenware. It was popular between 1790 and 1820. Its exterior decoration is characterized by horizontal bands of various widths and colors. Earth tones were seen on early annular ware. Later, there was a shift towards varying shades of brown, green, orange, tan, gray and blue-green. Designs were pressed or rolled on to the vessel, or were cut into the vessel by engine turning. (Rensselaer, 1966: 240-242)
