Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Ovoid 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 Ovoid Form, Tall Rim with Rolled Base, Cobalt at the Handle Terminals, and a Garland of Leaves with a Double Tulip Between Each. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Strong cobalt throughout the design. Stands 9 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. Five minor nibbles on the rim (1/16" to 1/8"), and narrow chips on the footer on one side. No inner rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
A nice early decorated Philadelphia jar
