  • Attributed to the Mount Shepherd pottery. These sagger pins were recovered at Philip Jacob Meyer’s pottery site at Mount Shepherd. He trained at the Moravian pottery at Salem but was banished from the community for persistent bad behavior in 1789. He worked briefly for Gottlob Krause at Bethabara before setting up his own manufactory in Randolph County.
