Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Gorgeous 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar attributed to Richard Remmey of Philadelpia.
Richard Remmey 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 1870, this beauty features Light Gray Clay that Hosts 3 Large Remmey Tulips in Bold Cobalt Blue. Each floral has twelve leaves and a drooping blossom with three petals. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Stands 13 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 7/8" chip on the rim above one flower, and a minor 2" hairline at the base that does not wrap under (closeup). That's it! No inner rim or base chips, cracks, stains, or restoration. Very clean glaze.
