Jeffrey S. Evans/Green Valley Auctions, June 26, 2004.
Ex-collection of Roscoe and Mary Poole, Waynesboro, VA.
Exhibited: "'A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware,' The Rockingham County, Virginia School of Folk Pottery", Harrisonburg-Rockingham Historical Society, September 7 - December 30, 2004, No. 23.

Catalogue Note: This is one of a growing group of pottery attributed to Andrew Coffman's son and/or grandsons in the Elkton area.
The initial owner of the pottery was Col. Henry H. Miller Jr/III (1797-1873). Upon Henry Miller's death in 1873, his son Joseph George Harnsberger Miller took over the pottery and began advertising as the "Riverton Crock Works of Messers Miller & Coffman". The name on this jar represents Joseph's wife, Sallie Brubaker Miller. Research on the Miller and Coffman family pottery ventures is ongoing.
