Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Stoneware Jar 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 an Rolled Rim with Five Flowers Around the Middle. The larger ones look like birds in flight. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Strong cobalt throughout the decoration. Stands 7 3/4" tall.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
A nice early and small decorated Philadelphia jar
