Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Stunning 1 1/2 Gallon Stoneware Jar with Striking Decoration.
This crock is easily attributed to 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 a Finely Tooled Rim with Ridged Shoulder, and Three Large Cobalt Flowers Around the Middle. The cobalt is as good as it gets, and the flowers fill most of the space too! Shiny cobalt on a warm gray clay make for a lot of eye appeal. Measures 10 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. Some small chips and one larger (1/2") inside the rim, two minor 1/8" nibbles outside the rim, and a chip on the side where excess salt has come off. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
One of the best Remmey Jars that I have ever seen.
