Very Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Coggled and Incised Decoration, attributed to Xerxes Price, Sayreville, NJ, early 19th century, ovoid jar with tall collar and thick, semi-lunate handles, the shoulder embellished with a coggled column motif. Front and reverse of jar decorated with a stylized, incised-and-cobalt-highlighted floral motif related to Manhattan stoneware of the late 18th and early 19th century. Cobalt highlights to tops of handles. The handle construction and coggled motif of this jar indicate Sayreville, NJ potter, Xerxes Price, as its maker. The use of freehand incising on this jar is noteworthy, as this potter's typical method of decoration involved stamped motifs. This example is distinguished as one of a very few incised pieces known by this influential New Jersey maker. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. Restoration to base area. Exfoliation to underside. One handle with a few unrestored chips. A 7/8" filled spot to rim.
