Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this monumental 3 Gallon Ovoid Jar from Philadelphia.
The early form and floral decoration is reminiscent of stoneware by Henry Remmey of Philadelphia after his arrival from Baltimore. 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 1830, this beauty features an Early Ovoid Form, Tooled Shoulder and Footer, and a Garland of Leaves and Fruit around the Middle. All of the garland is executed in strong cobalt blue too! Comes with what may be its original lid-- fits well and is the same color. Stands 14 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. The base has two 1 1/2" narrow chips on the footer, and some staining near the base. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. The lid has two 1/8" chips on the knob and heavy chipping to the seating ring on the underside. No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
An uncommon large ovoid jar with nice decoration by Henry Remmey!
