Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 8" Ovoid Jar from Philadelphia.
The early form and floral decoration is reminiscent of stoneware by Henry Remmey of Philadelphia after his arrival from Baltimore. 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 1835, this beauty features an Early Ovoid Form, Rounded Rim, Ridged Footer, and a Garland of Three Sideways Tulips Around the Middle. Each tulip has 8 leaves and a blossom with 4 petals--- all in strong cobalt blue too! Stands 8" tall.
Excellent Condition. A single 1/4" chip on the footer! That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A kiln touch on one side in the making.
This is an early, small, and nicely decorated jar!
