Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Stoneware Jar attributed to Henry Remmey, Jr. of Philadelphia, PA.
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 1840, this beauty features an Rolled Rim with a Garland of Four Leaves with a Double Tulip Between Each. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Strong cobalt throughout the design. Stands 8" tall.
Excellent Condition. A shallow 1/2" surface chip on the side to the right of one bottom tulip, and two chips at the base (1/4", 1/2"). No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
A nice early decorated Philadelphia jar
