Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 1/2 Gallon Decorated Stoneware Ovoid Jar.
This is the work of 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 the Ovoid Form with Tall Neck, Tooled Shoulder and Handles, Defined Footer, and a Show-Stopping Garland of Bold Cobalt Blue. The garland encircles the shoulder with three leaves and three flowers dangling from it on each side, as well as cobalt encircling the handles. Light gray clay and gorgeous cobalt decoration for a scruptious contrast. Stands 10" tall.
Very Good Condition. Five small chips inside the rim (1/2" to 1/4"), one outside the rim (1/2"), a flat 1/4" flake at the base. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 1/4" stoneping by one flowe. The chips inside are colored to match the glaze.
