Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Gorgeous Decorated 1 Gallon Pitcher easily attributed to Richard Remmey.
Richard Remmey ran the family pottery in Philadelphia from the 1860's until the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-10).
Dating to the 1860's, this beauty features a Tall Rim with Rolled Edge and Incised Lines, Bulbous Body with Tulips, Double Ringed Footer, and Handle with Cobalt Accents at the Handle Terminals. And the decoration! Wow! Bold cobalt on a light gray clay for maximum contrast. Five leaves adorn the rim, a squiggle line encircles the shoulder, and two large tulips punch out the artistry on the body. Stands 11" tall.
Excellent Condition. A flat 1/4" flake inside the rim and on the spout, a 1/2" chip on the underside of the footer at the edge (closeup), and a couple very faint stains. No hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A 1/4" clay void on the top of the rim by the handle in the making.
