  1. I am trying to find the origin of the Steward Pottery in Mississippi. The stamp on the butter churn reads Steward Pottery ------ Miss. I am not able to read the town on the stamp. Thank you

  2. I don't know Steward Pottery but Stewart Pottery was in Louisville, Winston County, Mississippi. See the article I wrote at for a photograph of a Stewart Churn and stamp.
