Very Rare Sponge-Decorated Yellowware Pig Bottle, attributed to Anna Pottery, Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick, Anna, IL, fourth quarter 19th century, with hole at rear and incised details to face and hooves, the surface decorated with a streaked brown glaze over a yellow ground. Aspects of the form and incised face, as well as the existence of a similarly-glazed example attributed to the Kirkpatrick brothers, suggest this bottle is an Anna piece. A fine example of Midwestern pottery. Literature: Pictured on p. 30 of Dr. Carmen Guappone's "America's Cobalt Decorated Stoneware: Special Edition, Book III". Chip to hoof and spout. Wear and a shallow chip to nose. Wear to ears. Tight 6" hairline along back. L 6 1/2".
