Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this rare, early 1 Gallon Ovoid Jar with Incised Decoration.
The form and decoration indicate that this jar originates around 1800-1820 in Old Bridge, New Jersey, possibly the work of the Morgan-Van Winkle Pottery. M. Lelyn Branin, The Early Makers of Handcrated Earthenware and Stoneware in Central and Southern New Jersey, pp. 97-100.
This beauty features an Ovoid Form, Short Tooled Rim and Neck, Ringed Shoulder, Distinct Footer, and an Incised Decoration with Stem, 5 Leaves, a Cluster of 7 Seeds or Grapes, and Color Fill. Stands 11 1/2" tall.
The decoration has been attributed to Joseph Henry Remmey who may have worked for the Morgan-Van Winkle Pottery. Branin, pp. 70-71, and photo if from p. 82.
Very Good Condition. A 1/2" chip inside and on top of the rim, a narrow 1" chip on the footer, and a 1/2" chip on the underside at the edge. Some water glass staining from use. No outer rim or handle chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
