Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Cobalt Drunkard Decoration, Stamped "POTTERY WORKS / LITTLE WST 12TH ST. NY," William Macquoid, Manhattan, NY, circa 1870, cylindrical jug with sloped shoulder and rounded spout, decorated with a brushed cobalt decoration of a pot-bellied man raising a glass to his mouth. Figure depicted wearing a hat and coat embellished with buttons, pocket, and upturned collar. Desirable and highly unusual figural decoration, executed in a stronger cobalt slip than typical for Macquoid stoneware. This jug was recently discovered in the basement of a house in Kentucky. As-made condition with in-the-firing thin lines at base, a small stone ping at base, and a 4" horizontal in-the-firing separation line at base. A 1 3/4" line spout on reverse, which appears to have occurred in the firing. H 14 3/8".
