Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 8" 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, Tall RimRounded Rim, Ridged Footer, and a Garland of Flowers and Leaves Around the Middle. All of the garland is executed in strong cobalt blue too! Stands 8" tall.
Very Good Condition. A single 1/2" chip on the rim and two on the footer (3/8" to 5/8"), and some light staining from use. That's it! No inner rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A kiln touch on one side in the making.
This is an early small ovoid jar with nice decoration by Henry Remmey!
