Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Decorated Stoneware 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 1835, this beauty features a Flared Rim, Tooled Shoulder, Ridged Handles, Ovoid Body, Small Footer, a Garland of 3 Daisies on Each Side, and Additional Cobalt Accents at the Handle Terminals and Below the Handle. The daisies each have 5 to 7 leaves each and a blossom with 6 petals. On one side the blossoms are dotted and on the other side they are not. All the cobalt is rich and shiny. Stands 11 3/8" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1/2" chip inside the rim, and a narrow 5/8" chip outside the rim. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
