Very Rare Southern Stoneware Presentation Vessel, Incised "Miss E Davis on 1842," probably Tennessee origin, ovoid vessel with dramatically-coved body, footed base, and five applied spouts. Surface and edges of spouts decorated with brushed iron slip bands and covered in a clear salt glaze. Incised around shoulder "Miss E Davis on 1842". Vessel originally had four small strap handles, which have broken off. Though similar in form to a harvest jug, this unique piece was likely made as a flower vase or planter, possibly for bulbs. Remnants of dirt on the interior base seem to corroborate this idea. Exceptional form. Missing four small applied strap handles. Chips to base and spouts. H 10 1/4".
