Exceptional Stoneware Jug with Incised Ring-Necked Pheasant Decoration, Crolius or Remmey Family, Manhattan, NY, late 18th or early 19th century, large-sized jug with highly ovoid form, rounded spout, and heavily-ribbed handle, decorated with a large incised standing pheasant with crest, ringed neck, detailed wing, and scalloped tail tip. Decoration filled with cobalt slip. A finely-executed and large-sized design. This jug is one of a very few pieces known decorated by the same skilled craftsman. We are aware of two other similarly-shaped jugs with this decoration, as well as an extremely important stoneware flask, decorated with three incised birds of this style. Provenance: Sotheby's, New York. Base chips. Hairlines at base and in handle. Two in-the-firing chips on top of spout. H 14 1/2".
