Extremely Rare Early Stoneware Jar with Open Handles and Slip-Trailed Cobalt Floral Decoration, Baltimore, MD origin, circa 1820, finely-potted, thin-walled jar with flared rim, rounded foot, and open loop handles. Shoulder accented with two combed bands of incising, and decorated on the front and back with a slip-trailed cobalt daisy flanked by sweeping vines. An exceptionally well-potted and elegantly-styled example of early Baltimore stoneware. The distinctive color and decoration of this piece are characteristic of stoneware made by potter, William Morgan, either solely or during his partnership with Thomas Amoss. Small rim chips. 1 1/2" hairline from rim above one handle. 2 1/2" x 2" faint X-shaped line under one handle, which likely occurred in the firing and does not extend through to interior. H 13 3/8".
