Additional Details:
This fine old Colonial house is occupied by Mrs. W.B. Walker, the only surviving grandchild of the builder. She owns the largest private collection of US pottery as well as many rare specimens of old china. The beautiful monument of the potter's skill which stands on the porch, was shown at the Crystal Palace Exhibition at New York in 1854. It stands ten feet in height on the pedestal of Scrodel 32 inches in diameter. The base is of mottled Rockingham and the Corinthian column canopy encloses a Parian bust of C.W. Fenton, the designer, who made the old pottery famous, and was the inventor of "flint finish." The whole is surmounted by a figure of Charity.
