Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this fantastic 6 1/4" Jar attributed to Richard Remmey of Philadelphia.
Richard Remmey ran the family pottery in Philadelphia from the 1860's until the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-10).
Dating to the 1860's, this beauty features the Uncommon Small 6 1/8" Size, Tooled Rim and Shoulder, and a Garland of 4 Leaves Around the Middle. Each leaf has 3 or 4 brushstrokes of the freehand cobalt. Stands only 6 1/8" tall.
Excellent Condition. Six small chips on the bottom edge (1/8" to 1/4"), and some surface craze lines from age. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Some minor chips around one side of the rim in the making from where it separated from another jar in the kiln.
