Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Jar with Freehand Tulip.
The decoration and the impressed capacity number make it easy to attribute this jar to D. F. Shenfelder of Reading, Pennsylvania. Shenfelder made pottery in Reading from approximately 1860-1900 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 24-26).
This beauty features a Carefully Tooled Rim, Impressed Capacity Number, Freehand Stripe Below the Rim, and a Freehand Vining with a Fuchsia Blossom Cascading Across the Middle. The vining has 15 leaves and a blossom has 8 petals. Nicely drawn in the Shenfelder fashion. Stands 9 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. A 2" vertical hairline below the decoration that trails off on the bottom. Three surface firing lines- 3" on the back near the bottom and two on the bottom (2 1/2", 4"). Three narrow chips on the back bottom edge ( 1/2" to 1"). No rim chips, stains, or restoration.
