Stoneware Serving Pitcher with cobalt decorations, approximate 1-Gallon capacity, Northeastern US origin, probably Massachusetts, ca. A successful, wheel-thrown Ovoid form with tooled midsection and pronounced 1 tooled rim molding.
Decorated on the body with a double Floral Plume Wreath in the boldest of Slip-Trailed Cobalt. Tan, Salt-Glazed exterior; Albany Slip interior. Condition : Expected wear on the base and inner rim, as shown; otherwise in Excellent, original condition with strong color. Inherent glaze, surface and firing imperfections noted for descriptive accuracy.
Note : There is a short 3/4 drying line on the inner rim, near the spout, that occurred in-the-making (see close-up, photo #9). Also, some excess Albany Slip on the outer collar, right side. No damage, repairs, restorations or other excuses.
A very clean example that will not disappoint. Displays brilliantly; highly-appropriate for any collection. See photos for complete details and close-ups. Please consider them as part of the description.
1-Gallon capacity, filled up to the rim. I would actually consider this a 3/4-Gallon (3-Quart) Pitcher. Measures 10-1/4H x 6-3/4W overall. Rim measures 5-1/2W x 6D.
