Outstanding One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Exuberant Freehand Manganese Decoration, attributed to George Newman Fulton, Allegheny County, VA, circa 1875, straight-sided jar with tooled shoulder and flattened rim, decorated with brushed manganese flowering plant bearing three large blossoms. This design is underscored by two brushed manganese "1" 's to denote the capacity, interspersed with vertical manganese swags. The entire front of the jar is then flanked on each side by a column of stylized manganese flowerheads. Nearly all possible space for decoration is consumed on the front of this jar. One of the finest examples of Fulton stoneware we have offered for sale. Roughness to interior and exterior of rim. 1/2" shallow chip to rim. 1/2" flake on surface, possibly an in-the-making contact mark. H 10".
