This form of turned, covered treenware also became known as Peaseware, taken from David Mills Pease family who moved from The Connecticut River Valley around 1838 and settled in the Western Reserve of northeastern Ohio. The Pease and Brown families continued to produce covered treenware for over 125 years and were considered industry leaders. However, this paint decorated example may predate their work.
