Rare Early Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Watchspring Decoration, probably Capt. James Morgan, Cheesequake, NJ, possibly Remmey or Crolius Families, Manhattan, NY, circa 1775, finely-potted ovoid jar with flared rim and heavily-tooled foot and shoulder, decorated around the body with four slip-trailed cobalt "watchspring" designs incorporating pairs of curled trails. Based on archaeological evidence, it is also possible that this jar was made a member of the Remmey or Crolius families in Manhattan, NY, sometime during the second half of the 18th century. Excellent form and decoration. Restored crack extending down from rim and onto underside, which includes some touch-up to one curled trail of cobalt. Additional restoration to rim. H 9 1/4".
