Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Monumental 3 Gallon Decorated Stoneware Jar.
This is the work of Richard Remmey who made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1860, this beauty features the Tall and Cylindrical Form with Tooled Rim and Shoulder, and a Show-Stopping Garland of Large Sideways Tulips that Remmey was Known For. There are four brushed cobalt tulips around the middle executed in brilliant and shiny blue! 113 strokes of cobalt in all (apparently I don't have enough to do!) Stands 15 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. Nine chips on the rim (1/8" to 3/8"), seven inside, one on top, and one outside. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
