Description : An attractive and potentially unique, Salt-Glazed Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Bird Decoration, approximate 1-Gallon capacity, Northeastern US origin, ca. If pressed, I would attribute to Hudson Valley, New York State, but could be convinced otherwise. Wheel-thrown, cylindrical form with eased shoulder and tooled rounded rim.
Integrated inner ledge for a lid. Front features a bold Brushed and Slip-Trailed Folky Bird perched on a stylized Tulip Floral in bold, blue Cobalt. Salt-Glazed exterior; Albany Slip interior. Condition : There is a faint hairline down from the shoulder (left side) and extending across the base, as shown; otherwise in Very Good, as-made condition with strong color. Expected wear noted on the inner rim where a lid would rest.See photos for complete details and close-ups. Please consider them as part of the description. Displays brilliantly with tremendous Folk Art appeal.
Measures 9-3/4"H x 7"W overall. The inner and outer rim diameters are 5-1/8 and 6-1/8, respectively. Good Luck, thanks for looking, and be sure to bookmark my Auctions, listed and ending daily.
