    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Pitcher easily attributed to Henry Remmey, Jr. of Philadelphia, PA.

     

    Henry Remmey, Jr. ran the family pottery in Philadelphia from the 1820's to the 1850's (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners , pp. 8-10).

     

    Circa 1840, this beauty features the Larger 2 Gallon Size with Tall Neck with Rounded Rim, Bulbous Base with Rounded Footer, and Lots of Decoration.  Vining climbs up each side of the spout and hangs down from each side of the rim.  A very large brushed cobalt vine moves right to left around the middle with four units of double flowers and leaves.  Additional cobalt accents at the handle terminals. Bright cobalt on a light gray glaze for maximum contrast.  Stands 13 1/4" tall

     

    Exceptional Condition.  A single 1/2" chip on the underside in the back.  No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  Some small stone protrusions in the making. 

     

    As clean an example of a Henry Remmey piece that you will ever find.
