Aug 2, 2021 • CROCKER FARM, INC

A newly-discovered American ceramic treasure, the Anna Pottery Liberty Monument is one of the most artistically expressive and racially progressive stoneware objects in existence. Made in the wake of the tragic 1873 Colfax Massacre in Louisiana, it communicates the Kirkpatrick brothers’ outrage at the treatment of Reconstruction-era African Americans. This masterwork is being sold as part of our Summer 2021 auction of American stoneware & redware pottery.
