History on the Ginger Bottle
Collecting ginger bottles is still extremely popular in today's society. The origins of ginger beer and bottling dates back to the early 1700’s in England. Ginger beer was made with yeast, honey, ginger and cloves and was stored in stoneware bottles then corked to ferment and maintain its natural effervescence. Ginger beer originally could contain up to 11% alcohol. Today Ginger beer remains popular in specialty cocktails but is most often non alcoholic.
Due to the handcrafted quality of our pottery, each piece will vary slightly from the other making each one unique. All Rowe Pottery is handcrafted by an artisan in Cambridge, Wisconsin.
About 2020 Historical Collection
This year as part of our ongoing celebration of 45 years we are looking back on our own history and bringing back beautiful forms that will always remain functional pieces in the everyday home.
Our historical collection has primarily always been created in our Ash Glaze. Our Ash Glaze is an adaptation of pottery fired in the 1800’s in traditional wood burning kilns. When pottery was fired in a wood burning kiln ashes and other debris adhered to the pots giving them rustic coloration and earthy texture. Our pieces today replicate this look and each piece is unique in how the ash glaze presents itself during firing.
Due to the handmade quality of our pottery, slight variations in glazing and design of the pieces is expected.
