Extremely Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Unusual Cobalt Wreath Decoration, Stamped "CLINTON POTTERY," Clinton, Oneida County, NY, circa 1847, squat-shaped jug with rounded shoulder and semi-squared rim, decorated with a brushed cobalt wreath design surrounding a cross-shaped blossom. According to William C. Ketchum's The Potters and Potteries of New York State, "For a few months in 1847 the old redware kiln at Clinton in Oneida County produced salt-glazed stoneware under the partnership of John W. Gregory, Benjamin Lent, and Dwight W. Graves. Fewer than a half dozen marked pieces are known to survive." (Ketchum, p. 275). An exceptionally rare example of New York State stoneware. Large spout chip. Hairline in handle. H 10 3/8".
