Spongeware
Spongeware

Spongeware is very similar to spatterware in appearance. The designs were applied to the ceramics by daubing the color on with a sponge or cloth. Many collectors do not differentiate between spongeware and spatterware and use the names interchangeably. Modern pottery is being made to resemble the old spongeware, but careful examination will show it is new. The easiest spongeware to identify are the white crockery pieces decorated with blue sponged decoration in a random overall pattern. Some spongeware is listed in the Spatterware category.
