Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Decorated Stoneware 9" Jar.
The form and decoration indicate that it was made by Henry Remmey, Jr. of Philadelphia who 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 a very desirable Tall and Narrow Form with Rolled Rim and Two Brushed Cobalt Flowers executed in Rich and Dark Cobalt. The rolled rim is characteristic of Remmey and the form of the jar is typical of that used for snuff.
The flower is unusual in that the leaves are actually used as a blossom. If you study Remmey florals, there is a wide diversity of types and styles.
Excellent Condition. Tiny nibbles around the bottom edge. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
