Rare and Fine Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Woman Decoration, attributed to David Greenland Thompson, Morgantown, WV, circa 1860, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and distinctive extruded handles, decorated on the front with a large figural design of a woman wearing a hat with train, holding a fan or sash. Additional layers of brushed cobalt form the brim of the woman's hat, her collar, and an apron. Trees with two rows of sponged leaves appear to the left and right of the figure. A heavily-brushed cobalt stripe forms the ground below the woman. An additional cobalt stripe decorates the area below the rim and accents to front edge of each handle. Shoulder impressed with distinctive Thompson three-gallon capacity mark. The size and color of the decoration make this jar a particularly striking example. One of the finest Morgantown people crocks we have ever offered. Provenance: Descended in the family of legendary Ohio antiques dealer, Clark Garrett. Very nice condition with a chip to back edge of each handle and a recessed in-the-firing contact mark to front. H 13 1/4".
