Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Elaborate and Rare 1 Gallon Stoneware Pitcher.  

 

Dating to the 1860's, but beauty is attributed to either Louis Lehman (1858-1863) or William MacQuoid (1963-1879) of Manhattan, New York City (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 63).  

 

This beauty features a tall and sloping neck with gently pinched spout, bulbous body, and tall footer, and several embossed horizontal rings from top to bottom.  The rings are covered in cobalt to create a distinct rim, neck with three tulips in bloom, a shoulder with cobalt fringe, a body with looped decoration, and a base with two stripes.  Fine Craftsmanship!   A hole in the top of the handle so that it could be fitted with a pewter lid.  Stands 10" tall.

 

Excellent Condition.  A narrow 1/2" chip inside the rim by the handle and on the left side of the spout, a 1/4" chip on the first ring below the rim, a 1/4" chip on the underside, and a 3/8" chip on the edge of the hole on the top of the handle.  No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
