Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous 2 Gallon Jar made in Southwest Pennsylvania.
The light color and decoration with rounded edged is typical of pottery made at the Boughner Pottery in Greensboro from the 1850's into the 1860's (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 151-155).
Dating about 1865, this jar features an Undulating Vine Across the Front with a Tulip at the End. The vine had 12 leaves and a blossom with 5 petals. The decoration fills the front of the jar with the powerful cobalt blue we appreciate! The contrast of light gray glaze and dark cobalt is what we expect of a Boughner. Stands 11 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. A single 1 1/2" scratch to the left of the tulip blossom. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
A freehand decorated jar from the early days of pottery in Greensboro.
