Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Jar with Comma Garland.
The jar's form and decoration make it easy to attribute to David Parr who made stoneware in Richmond, Virginia in the 1860's and 1870's (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 102).
This beauty features a Thick and Finely Tooled Rim with a Groove for Tying a Waxed Paper or Cloth Over the Top, and Three Units of Brushed Cobalt Comma Vining. The vining is painted in broad strokes in rich cobalt and all units end with the exagerrated last stroke that Parr decorators were so happy to apply. Stands 10 1/4" tall.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind. A 1/4" clay void in the rim in the making.
