Rare Miniature Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Jar, Incised "Jonathan E. Buck," probably Ohio origin, second or third quarter 19th century, ovoid jar with semi-squared rim and applied tab handles, decorated with a stylized cobalt tulip blossom surrounded by a brushed cobalt border. Additional cobalt daubs on top of rim and surrounding handles. Incised on underside "Jonathan E. Buck". Clay, form, and decoration, are consistent with Virginia stoneware, suggesting this may be a piece by one of the Buck potters from Woodstock, VA or Southwestern, VA. However, Jonathan E. Buck shows up in the 1850 census as an 18-year-old Maryland-born potter working with his father, Jacob Buck, in Columbiana County, Ohio. Excellent form and size. Heavy in-the-firing chipping to base. Chip to one handle. H 4".
