    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Decorated Jar from Virginia. 


    The decoration makes it easy to attribute this jar to Jacob Jeremiah Eberly and his brother Joseph who began pottery manufacture in Strasburg in 1874 after buying a share of the Keister Pottery.  See the discussion in H. E. Comstock, The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 399.


    This beauty features a Carefully Tooled Rim for Tying Down a Cloth or Waxed Paper Cover, and Five Brushed Cobalt Tulips Dangling from the Rim.   Very strong cobalt on a light gray glaze for a pleasing contrast.  Stands 9 1/2" tall.


    Very Good Condition.  A 1/2" chip inside the rim, a 1/4" chip on top of the rim, and heavier wear on one side than the others.  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
