Outstanding and Important Ten-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Incised Peacock-on-Flower Decoration, Ohio origin, circa 1875, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, applied lug handles, and rounded rim embellished with extremely rare pie-crust crimping. Front decorated with a very large folk art design of a peacock perched on the stem of a flowering plant. The peacock was created with highly unusual stippled and cobalt-highlighted incising, as well as numerous slip-trailed dots. Tail heavily-brushed with cobalt slip. Detailed flowering plant with mum-like blossoms is incised and cobalt-highlighted, extending from grasses at base. Shoulder decorated with incised and cobalt-highlighted dashes and bands. Incised with a cobalt-highlighted "10" to peacock's right. One of the finest examples of Midwestern stoneware to be offered at auction in several years. A creative and bold figural design with great folk art appeal. Chips to interior of rim. 1 1/2" salt drip on reverse. H 16 1/4".
