Extremely Important Samuel Troxel Sgraffito Redware Plate, Montgomery County, PA, 1833Extremely Important Samuel Troxel Sgraffito Redware Plate, Montgomery County, PA, 1833

Montgomery County Masterpiece. Exceedingly Rare and Important Sgraffito-Decorated Redware Plate with Bird-and-Flowering-Urn Motif, Inscribed "Ich koche was ich kan; Was mey Sau nicht frest; Das frest mey mann; Sa.l Tr.l [Samuel Troxel] / Ja.y 25th 1833 a[nno] F[ecit]". Reverse signed in incised script, "Samuel Troxel / Potter To uperhanover / Township Montgomery / County January us the / 25th A.D. 1833,". This remarkable plate typifies Pennsylvania-German sgraffitoware in its skillfully-carved decoration and charming inscription, which translates to, "I cook what I can; What my sow doesn't eat; That is what my husband eats." Outside of museum collections, relatively few examples of Pennsylvania-German sgraffitoware are known in high-grade condition. This plate, surviving in an exceptional state of preservation, is one of only two examples known bearing an incised inscription by Troxel on the reverse, the second residing in the collection of Winterthur. In addition, this plate bears the same date of manufacture as an iconic Troxel plate, inscribed "Liberty for Gackson", owned by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The sale of this plate in our Summer auction offers a rare opportunity to acquire a fine-conditioned, signed work of sgraffitoware by one of the leading masters of this decorative technique. Literature: For a Troxel plate bearing the same date, see Garvan, The Pennsylvania-German Collection, p. 205, fig. 143. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, acquired privately in the 1980s, this plate will be offered publicly for the first time in its existence. Diameter 10 1/4".

Exceptional 5 Gal. HARRINGTON & BURGER / ROCHESTER Stoneware Jar with Elaborate Parrot Decoration

Rochester Rarity. Exceptional Five-Gallon Stoneware Cream Jar with Cobalt Decoration of a Parrot Clutching a Cluster of Cherries, Stamped "HARRINGTON & BURGER / ROCHESTER", New York State origin, circa 1852-1854. Featuring a painterly design of a parrot perched on a tree, clutching a cluster of cherries in its foot, this outstanding decoration may have been inspired by natural history prints of the period. The jar's highly artistic design and striking color would set the standard for American stoneware production in mid 19th century New York. This motif even served as the inspiration for a design found in the work of Julius and Edward Norton of Bennington, Vermont, circa 1855, made shortly after this jar's production. One of the finest examples of Rochester, NY stoneware to come to auction in years. H 15 1/8".

Morgan Masterpiece. Important and Possibly Unique Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Incised Bird Decoration, Stamped "DAVID MORGAN. / NEW YORK", Manhattan, NY origin, circa 1800. This jug is regarded as the finest example of surviving stoneware produced at the short-lived Corlears Hook pottery of David Morgan. It is believed to be one of two known examples of signed Manhattan stoneware with incised bird decoration. (The second such piece is an iconic Clarkson Crolius, Sr. jug, previously owned by the Keno brothers, which sold in Crocker Farm's November 3, 2007 auction.) The bird on this jug exhibits a fine-feathered crest and cross-hatching to its neck ring, unusual among Manhattan bird motifs. The artist evidently took pride in this work as space was found on the reverse for the maker's mark, a treatment unknown among any other extant Manhattan jugs. H 15".

Exceptional F. H. COWDEN / HARRISBURG, PA 3 Gal. Stoneware Jug with Large and Elaborate Man s Head Decoration

Folk Art Face. Exceptional Three-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Large Cobalt Decoration of a Gentleman's Bust, Stamped "F.H. COWDEN / HARRISBURG, PA", circa 1880.

H 17".

Outstanding 5 Gal. J. & E. NORTON / BENNINGTON, VT Stoneware Crock with Pecking Chicken Scene

The Best of Bennington. Exceptional Five-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Pecking Chicken Scene, Stamped "J. & E. NORTON / BENNINGTON, VT.", circa 1855. This crock is regarded as one of the finest Norton products featuring a pecking chicken motif. Depicting an oversized chicken atop a profusely-decorated ground, this crock's addition of the classic Norton pine tree and stump motifs is highly unusual. H 13".

Extremely Rare and Important N. YORK / COERLEARS HOOK Stoneware Pitcher with Incised Decoration, Thomas Commeraw, late 18th centuryExtremely Rare and Important N. YORK / COERLEARS HOOK Stoneware Pitcher with Incised Decoration, Thomas Commeraw, late 18th century

Important Commeraw Pitcher. Exceedingly Rare Half-Gallon Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Pitcher with Incised Floral Decoration, Stamped "N. YORK / COERLEARS HOOK", Thomas Commeraw, Manhattan, NY, late 18th century. The rarity of this work cannot be overstated. Pitchers produced at any point in Thomas Commeraw's career are considered highly unusual. This example was made during the potter's important early period in which the stamp, "CORLEARS HOOK / N. YORK", (considered the first Manhattan, NY maker's mark) was employed. Commeraw's skill as both a potter and decorator were revealed during this brief period, as his finely-formed pots exhibited artistic splay-petaled incising and superior coloration. This work is the only pitcher we have seen bearing this mark, and the vessel's half-gallon size also rank it among the smallest signed Manhattan stoneware pitchers in existence. One of the most important works known by America's earliest African-American pottery owner. H 8 1/2".

Parr Perfection. Exceptional Six-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Profuse Cobalt Flowering Urn Decoration, attributed to David Parr, Sr., Baltimore, MD, circa 1825. Regarded as the greatest example of David Parr, Sr., stoneware known, this jar features a total of forty-one tulips decorating the front, sides, and reverse. The form and decoration of this jar would serve as a strong influence on potters of the Southern and Mid-Atlantic United States. Variants of its tulip motif are most easily recognized in the work of Parr's nephew, David Parr, Jr., of Richmond, VA. H 15".

Folk Art Jug. Exceedingly Rare Glazed Redware Jug with Ornamental Handle and Incised Tulip Decoration, Inscribed "D.B. Huber", David Bolden Huber (1845-1916), Niantic, Montgomery County, PA, circa 1865-1870. Featuring a bifurcated handle terminal embellished with faux screwheads above an incised and impressed tulip motif, this jug is one of only two examples known bearing a David B. Huber signature. A second, damaged jug with various incised names from the potter's family resides in the collection of the Schwenkfelder Library in Pennsburg, PA. Huber produced redware on the farm of his father, Henry Huber (1816-1900), in Niantic, Pennsylvania, a pottery that began production in 1842 and is believed to have ceased operation by the 1870s. Two lesser examples of Huber redware were sold by a descendant of the potter to Winterthur, an unsigned puzzle jug (museum catalog number 1980.0066) and unsigned miniature jug (museum catalog number 1980.0067). Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased in Pennsylvania decades ago. H 13".

It is the smallest American sgraffito-decorated dish that we are aware of. The reverse side includes the pencil inscription "Mary from Grandmother / Feb. 25 1909 / 1854". The date "1854" likely refers to a previous year of acquisition, as the decoration indicates a much earlier date of manufacture.

Manhattan Miniature. Exceedingly Rare and Important Miniature Stoneware Jug with Slip-Trailed Cobalt Foliate Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, probably Crolius Family, circa 1740-1775.

Variants of the cobalt decoration on this jug have been found on pieces signed by or attributed to Clarkson Crolius, Sr., made circa 1800-1815, indicating this jug was likely made by an ancestral member of the Crolius family, possibly William Crolius, Sr., John Crolius, Sr., or William Crolius, Jr. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, found in New York State.

Phenomenal Face Vessel and Related Photograph. Exceedingly Rare and Important Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Face Harvest Jug, Edgefield District, SC origin, circa 1845-1855, with Stereopticon Photograph, "The Aesthetic Darkey" from "Aiken and Vicinity", J.A Palmer, Aiken, S.C., 1882. This face vessel belongs to a very small, but iconic group, of Edgefield harvest jugs, made famous by the 1882 stereopticon image by photographer, J.A. Palmer, entitled "The Aesthetic Darkey". This image pictures an African-American boy seated at a table with an Edgefield face harvest jug holding a sunflower. The harvest jug ilustrated in the photo is made by the same skilled artisan as the harvest jug to be sold in our July 22 auction. Included in this lot is an original example of this photograph, titled and numbered "566" in pencil on reverse. The rare 19th century depiction of a Southern face vessel in situ, albeit in a staged setting, has sparked great interest into the maker of these specific harvest jugs. While as-yet-unidentified, the maker was one of the more talented and individualistic face vessel producers in the Edgefield District, his work typified by a gentle countenance to the face, small incised teeth, a heavily-domed top to the vessel, and large C-scroll ears. The example to be auctioned additionally includes finely-formed eyebrows with a greater sense of realism than found on most Edgefield face vessels, as well as highly-unusual incised hair extending above the brows. Certainly the finest Edgefield face vessel to come to auction in many years, its value and importance enhanced by a famous Southern image. Literature: For discussion on J.A. Palmer, see Teal, Partners with the Sun: South Carolina Photographers 1840-1890, pp. 123, 125, 126, 273, 279, 280, and 329; see Teal, p. 275, for an illustration of the photograph. H 10 1/4".

Rare and Fine Anna Pottery Stoneware Pig Bottle with Incised Railroad Map, Inscribed "With a little Good Old Bourbon in a hogs- / By Anna Pottery", Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick, Anna, IL, circa 1875-1880. This bottle, likely from a relatively early period in the Kirkpatricks' production of the form, includes several landmarks we cannot recall seeing on an Anna pig before. Among them is "Louisville Falls C", incised on the underside, not only exceptionally rare, but also indicative of the wit and bawdy humor associated with the Kirkpatricks' work. Additionally, the inclusion of the monikers, "Pig iron city" and "the Banner Democrat City", with the cities of "grand Tower" and "Jonesboro", is highly unusual. L 7 5/8".
