Rare Philadelphia Redware Batter Pitcher with Manganese Floral Decoration, circa 1865, squat-shaped, ovoid pitcher with coggled shoulder, pouring spout, and original lid. Body of pitcher decorated with three large manganese tulips flanked by smaller swags. Handle, rim, and lid, decorated with manganese sponging. The unusual floral motif around the body of the pitcher matches cobalt-decorated stoneware examples by the Remmey family, among others, from Philadelphia, PA. It is, therefore, likely that this pitcher was made and decorated by a Philadelphia potter familiar with the city's stoneware production. Provenance: From a forty-year private collection. Pitcher with rim chips, a shallow chip and wear to interior of spout, chips and wear to handle, two adjacent reglued pieces at rim measuring a total of 2", and shallow chips to edge of lid. H (including lid) 7 1/2".
