Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this cute and early 1/2 Gallon Decorated Jar
The decoration indicates that this jar was made by Isaac V. Machett, Sr. and Jr. who worked in Cornwall, N.Y. from 1859-1867, first together and then with Isaac, Jr. alone (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 65 and 82-83). It might even be an earlier work of Isaac V. Machet, Sr. who potted in Hackensack, N.J. before coming to Cornwall (Willliam Ketchum, Jr.,Potters and Potteries of New York State, 1650-1900, 2nd ed., p. 128).
This beauty features an Early Ovoid Form with Squared Rim, Small 1/2 Gallon Size, Freehand Cobalt Flower, and Cobalt Accents at the Handle Terminals. Stands 9 1/2" tall.
Very Good Condition. Six small chips on the rim (1/8" to 3/8"), a shallow 1/2" chip on the front middle to the left, and a 1" chip on the underside at the edge. No inner rim or handle chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
Don't you just love the little 1/2 gallon ovoid jars!
