North Devon Pottery and its Export to America in the 17th century

United States National Museum Bulletin (Smithsonian Institution),
vol. 225, paper 13, (1960), illus., maps. pp.17-59.


Malcolm C. Watkins

Prepared by Michael Steer

North Devon was the pivot of a fan of commerce extending, at its greatest point, westward as far as the colonies in North America and the West Indies. The heyday for North Devon Pottery and its exports was the 17th and early 18th Centuries - the end of the 17th century saw the trade with Northern colonies drop and then collapse. Despite a brief respite, overseas markets were lost and eventually plastic, enamel and glass replaced earthenware. The author, a curator at the Smithsonian has provided an interesting, illustrated paper on the results of excavations at a number of important US archaeological sites; including Jamestown and Plymouth, Massachusetts. There is evidence that the earliest colonists of the 17th century enjoyed a higher degree of comfort and more aesthetic furnishings than hitherto thought. His paper provides much new information about the interplay of trade and culture between the colonists and their mother country. The paper is the first in the author's major study of ceramics used by the English colonists of America.
