Fine Ovoid Stoneware Jar with Cobalt "Fish Scale" Decoration, attributed to Clarkson Crolius, Sr., Manhattan, NY, late 18th or early 19th century, ovoid jar with rounded foot, tooled shoulder, and tall cylindrical collar, the shoulder decorated with three groups of graduated slip-trailed semi-circles accented with dots at the center. This so-called fish scale, seed pod, or grape cluster motif, can be found on examples of 18th century Northeastern stoneware as well as early redware produced further South. Good form and decoration. A few in-the-firing chips to shoulder. A chip to top of rim, which appears to be in-the-firing, a small shallow rim chip, and a few minor rim nicks. One minor 1" hairline in rim.
