Brown, salt-glazed, 17th-18thC stoneware made at Burslem, Staffordshire, from local clays and sand. The origin of the name is unknown. It may be derived from the French cruche (pitcher), or alternatively crouch ware may have been made from crouch-clay, found near Crich in Derbyshire. It is not the same as crich ware, however.
