Extremely Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Pitcher with Cobalt Grapes Decoration, Stamped "COWDEN & WILCOX / HARRISBURG, PA," circa 1865, large-sized, ovoid-bodied pitcher with tooled midsection and rim, the front decorated with a vibrant cobalt grape cluster surrounded by two curled vines, a leaf, and a dotted trail. Swag-like cobalt brushwork below spout. The rare size and form, coupled with its unusual grapes decoration, make this pitcher one of the finer examples of Cowden & Wilcox stoneware to surface recently. Provenance: Part of a collection consigned from Oregon. 5 1/2" crack from rim on left side of pitcher. 3 1/4" faint line on right side of pitcher, which is not visible on the interior. H 12 3/4".
