March 3, 2012 Stoneware Auction

Lot #: 64

Price Realized: $632.50 ($550 hammer, plus 15% buyer's premium).

Two-Gallon Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Jar, probably Bell and Keister, Strasburg, VA, third quarter 19th century, ovoid jar with tall, flaring collar and applied lug handles, decorated on the front and back with a brushed cobalt flower flanked by swags. According to H.E. Comstock, author of The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, this jar may have been made during a time when the Keisters were working with the Bells. The open-headed flower on one side is more indicative of the Keisters' work. Rim chips. Two small base chips.
