Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Cute Little Decorated Semi-Ovoid Jar.
The decoration is distinctive of David Parr of Baltimore, Maryland (1815-1855) (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 98).
Dating around 1830, this beauty sports a Small Size, Semi-Ovoid Shape, Squared Rim, Hooded Handles, Double Comma Vining on Each Side, and Additional Cobalt Splashes at the Handle Terminals. The comma vining is liberally applied with a brush, and has the larger right hand stroke with squared base typical of Parr decoration. Stands 8 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. Two flat and narrow adjacent 1/2" chips on the rim, and a couple minor 1/8" nibbles on the base. That's it! No inner rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Exceptionally clean glaze.
