Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Ovoid Jar with Tulip Garland.
The jar's form and decoration make it easy to attribute to David Parr who made stoneware in Baltimore, Maryland from 1815 to 1855 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 98).
This beauty features an Ovoid Form, Thick and Finely Tooled Rim, and a Garland of Tulips on Each Side. The thick center vine has 5 tulip blossoms on one side and 6 on the other. All the cobalt is dark and bright on a light gray clay to provide a pleasing contrast. Additional cobalt stripe at the handles. Stands 14 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. Fine glaze checking inside at the bottom, two 1/2" pings on the rim, two small chips on the bottom ring of the tooled rim (1/4", 1/2"), and some fine surface craze lines near the bottom from age (closeup). That's it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A glazed chip on one handle and some kiln touches in the making.
