Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, ovoid-bodied pitcher with rounded foot and short collar with rounded rim, decorated with two large cobalt tulips flanking the finely-incised and cobalt-highlighted name "John N. Carley / 1894". Unusual brushwork of a tulip hanging from a band of leaves above the incised name, and vertical foliate brushwork below the date. Swag decoration surrounding the rim. A fine example of Philadelphia stoneware, surviving in very nice condition. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, never offered for public sale since its manufacture. Excellent overall condition. Approximately 1 1/2" line extending from interior of spout to top of rim, possibly in-the-firing. Minor 1" line on right side of spout, visible on exterior only. H 9".
