Catalogue Note: According to Evans/Suter, flower pots were a huge part of Suter's production at his New Erection site, ranging in size from 1" to 12" in diameter. In March of 1886 he built a small kiln strictly to burn flower pots. On September 3, 1886, he began to fill an order for 20,000 flower pots from a Staunton, VA merchant. Despite the vast numbers of flower pots produced by Suter, very few examples survive to this day.
