Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Decorated Stoneware Jar.
This jar is easily attributed to Richard Remmey who made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1860, this beauty features a Semi-Ovoid Form, Inscribed Shoulder Band, Rounded Footer, and a Garland of Cobalt Flowers Around the Middle. The two flowers on each side have between 9 and 12 leaves and a two arge blossoms hanging from the leaves. Gorgeous cobalt too! Stands 13 1/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. A 1/2" chip inside and outside the rim, and some scattered pinhead-size glaze nips near the bottom on one side. No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
