Rare Copper-Glazed Redware Dispensing Jar, probably American, possibly Western New York, early to mid 19th century, cylindrical jar with tooled midsection and large applied knobs, the surface covered in a dramatic bright green copper glaze. Found by the consignor in an Erie County, NY antiques shop just over thirty years ago. The unusual applied knobs on the jar suggest the vessel was held by a wooden cradle of some sort, and that it could be rotated forward or backward to access the contents inside. It is possible that this jar was designed to be used in a general store or similar place of business. Rare form with exceptional color. Converted into a lamp, but never drilled. Lamp still in working condition. Jar is excellent condition. Contact mark to shoulder. Light wear to knobs. Faint 2" line in underside. Contact mark on side. Flake and minor nicks to midsection. H (of jar) 11".
