Front and back decorated with an impressed design of a woman's profile, featuring a large eye with eyelashes, long hair, ribbed neck, and X-shaped detail to shoulder. Cobalt highlights to impressed designs and handle terminals. Stamp-decorated pieces of this style have been attributed to Xerxes Price of Sayreville, NJ, the Morgan / van Wickle Pottery of Old Bridge, NJ, and Josiah Chapman of Troy, NY.
