Exceedingly Rare and Important Manhattan Stoneware Advertising Jar, attributed to David Morgan or Thomas Commeraw, Manhattan, N.Y., circa 1797-1819, small, narrow jar with recessed opening on top, impressed in large letters "BROWN / No 274 / WATER STREET / N. YORK." Note the script "N" in "No 274," reminiscent of 18th and 19th century handwriting. This jar is one of a very few known pieces of early Manhattan advertising stoneware, and is one of the earliest advertising pieces in all of American stoneware. The form and unusual opening on the top of the jar suggest the vessel was used for canning purposes, perhaps oysters or fruit. Near mint; minor wear. Height 6 1/4".
