Early Ovoid New Jersey Stoneware Jug with Slip-Trailed "K"

October 29, 2011 Stoneware Auction

Lot #: 2   ||   
   ||       ||   

Price Realized: $920.00 ($800 hammer, plus 15% buyer's premium).

Extremely Rare One-Gallon New Jersey Stoneware Jug with Cobalt Letter "K," probably Kemple Pottery, Ringoes, NJ, circa 1750, highly ovoid jug with rounded foot, dramatically-tooled spout with rounded rim, and applied strap handle. Decorated with a slip-trailed letter "K" in cobalt script, along with cobalt brushwork at the handle terminals, all applied over a light gray clay body. The style of the jug suggests an early New Jersey origin and the intriguing script "K" with curled ends is highly reminiscent of the slip-trailed watchspring motifs used at the Kemple and Morgan potteries of Ringoes and Cheesequake. It is very likely that the K on this jug was a form of signature by one of the members of the Kemple Family of potters. An important example of early New Jersey stoneware. Heavy chipping to base. In-the-firing 1 3/4" separation to underside. H 10 1/2".
