The Newark Museum has a beautiful John Bennett covered jar! The jar was donated by the American Decorative Art 1900 Foundation.
John Bennett, Large covered jar

The first time I saw this piece was in a 2005 auction catalog of Rago Arts. This piece was estimated at $6,500.00 but sold for $19,200.00! That was a bargain. Another Bennett covered jars (estimated at $9,000.00) sold at the same auction for $66,000.00! Other museums which have Bennett covered jars (or covered vases) include the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. For more information regarding the Newark Museum visit http://www.newarkmuseum.org. In July of 2009 the Newark Museum issued  a press release for an exhibit called 100 Masterpieces of Art Pottery 1880 – 1930. To download a PDF of the press release, click the following link  100_masterpieces_of_art_pottery_071609.

For more information about other John Bennett pieces or to see if one is up for auction is at www.ragoarts.com. They have records for past auctions as well.
