CROLIUS / MANUFACTURER / NEW-YORK," circa 1832-1839, half-gallon ovoid jug with tooled shoulder, semi-squared rim, and ribbed handle, the surface dipped partially in Albany slip. The unglazed lower portion of the jug reveals an unusual soft reddish clay, suggesting this jug may have been produced from an experimental earthenware (redware) clay.
