Green Schoolhouse Stoneware Crock

crock price reduced $15

(Click here to place an order)

Exclusive-design pottery jar pictures the one-room Canterbury Green District School, a landmark 19th century building restored by the Canterbury Historical Society.

Using traditional methods, artisans of Grandville Hollow Pottery in central Pennsylvania wheel throw every piece, decorate it by hand, glaze it, and fire it at over 2300 degrees F. Molds and jiggers are not used. The slight variations in shape, size, and color resulting from the handmade process make each jar truly one of a kind. Lead-free, dishwasher and microwave safe, these jars can also be used in a conventional oven provided extreme rapid temperature changes are avoided. Seven inches tall. Holds approximately one quart.


Canterbury: The First 300 Years

Canterbury - The First 300 Years $20

(Click here to place an order)

Created by the society in celebration of the town’s tercentenary in 2003, this book is part of the Arcadia Images of America series. It provides glimpses of the people, places, and events that contributed to our town’s rich and sometimes quirky history.

The Canterbury Historical Society’s own Amy E. Orlomoski and A. Constance Sear are the authors. Together, with the collaboration of Bill Kivic and other society members, they sifted through thousands of photographs from the society’s archives and from private collections to put together Canterbury: The First 300 Years. Now in its second printing, this book delights and informs residents and visitors alike.
