Description

Crescent arches embossed near the top rims of holloware and flatware pieces identify this body style.  It is usually found with only banding but examples with teaberry motif are known.  The impressed oval mark verifies that the potter's name for this body style is Augusta Shape.  Many pieces are found simply marked "J. Clementson, Sheldon."
