Exceptional Stoneware PICKLES Jar, Stamped "C. CROLIUS / STONEWARE / MANUFACTURER / Manhattan Wells. / NEW YORK," circa 1810, half-gallon, finely-potted ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and narrow, slightly-flared opening, decorated with highly unusual impressed clamshells surrounding the maker's mark and the word "PICKLES". Brushed cobalt stripe below rim. This example is the first Crolius pickle jar we have seen to include an impressed clamshell motif. An excellent example of early Manhattan stoneware. Light exfoliation to surface. Heavy wear to top of rim and heavy wear to Albany slip glaze on interior of rim. 7/8" stone ping and a much smaller stone ping, both at base. Shallow base chip. H 8 1/4".
