Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar attributed to Henry Remmey, Jr. of Philadelphia, PA.
Henry Remmey, Jr. ran the family pottery in Philadelphia from the 1820's to the 1850's (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners , pp. 8-10).
Circa 1840, this beauty features a Tall and Narrow Form, Rolled Rim, and a Freehand Garland Flowers and Leaves All the Way Around. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Strong cobalt throughout the design on a light gray clay for maximum contrast. Stands 13 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A faint surface-only line halfway around the underside about a 1/2" in from the edge that is very likely a firing line in the making (closeup). No trace inside. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
A nice early decorated Philadelphia jar
