Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Ovoid Jar with Tulip Decoration
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, Rolled Rim, Hooded Handles with Cobalt Accents, and an Elaborate Blooming Bouquet of Tulips on Each Side. Each bouquet grows out of a bunch of leaves and contains 3 or 4 blooms. All the cobalt is dark and bright on a light gray clay to provide a pleasing contrast. Stands 9 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1 1/2" fine hairline at the base that wraps under the same short distance that was caused by a piece of straw burning away in the firing. That's it! No chips, cracks, stains, or restoration.
