Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Tiny 7 1/4" Freehand Decorated 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 1870, this beauty features a Finely Tooled Rim and Three Brushed Cobalt Sideways Flowers around the Middle. Each flower has 4 leaves and a blossom with 3 petals. All the decoration is executed in gorgeous cobalt. A strong and visually pleasing contrast between the light gray background glaze and the dark cobalt decoration that it hosts. Stands 7 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 3/8" chip on the underside and a small stain near the base. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A 1" chip on the bottom edge in the making and glazed over in the making.
