    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar with Freehand Decoration.


    The decoration makes it easy to attribute this jar to the pottery of D. G. Thompson who ran the family pottery in Morgantown from 1853-1890 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 98-99).


    This beauty features Three Freehand Stripes that Divides the Front into Two Panels: the Upper Panel Features Intricate Vining, and the Lower Panel Features a Capacity Number Flanked by Flowers and Underscored by Vining.  All the decoraiton is dark cobalt on a light gray background for striking contrast.  Stands 12" tall.


    One of the best Morgantown jars I have seen for contrast and beauty.  This exact jar is frequently seen on Pinterest postings.


    Excellent Condition. A few nibbles and a 1/4" chip inside the rim.  That's it!  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  Some marks on the right side where something brushed the jar before it was fired.  


    Ships double-boxed, insured, and FREE
