Nathan Clark's first pottery in New York was established in 1805 in Athens. William Ketchum, in his classic book "American Stoneware", noted that "one of the most interesting aspects of the Athens firm was its colonizing effect on upper New York State. Nathan Clark sent employees to open potteries in Lyons, Rochester, and Mount Morris ... probably no other single individual had as great an effect on the state's stoneware industry." (see page 66). This object was once part of the folk art collection of Elie Nadelman (1882-1946), the avant-garde sculptor. From 1924 to 1934, Nadelman's collection was displayed in his Museum of Folk Arts, located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. The Historical Society purchased Nadelman's entire collection in 1937.
