Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Decorated Stoneware Bottle.
Its origin is likely Baltimore as indicated by the color of the clay and the lack of Albany slip inside. The decoration is indicative of David Parr of Baltimore. He used this leaf pattern in larger garlands on his work. He and his family of potters were in Baltimore from 1815-1855 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 98).
Dating between 1830 and 1850, this beauty has an Unusual Form with Tall Neck and Distinctive Spout. Three Brushed Cobalt Leaves Decorate the Sides. Stands 6 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. Some chips around the spout. No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
I have only ever seen one other bottle like this in my career.
