Exceptional Four-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Profuse Cobalt Floral Decoration, Stamped "H. MYERS," Henry Remmey Sr. or Jr., Baltimore, MD origin, circa 1825, nicely-potted ovoid jar with heavily-tooled shoulder, footed base, squared rim, and applied tab handles. Decorated on the front and back with a boldly-brushed vine bearing four-petaled blossoms and leaves. Front features an unusual addition of a flower emanating from the center blossom, along with an overarching stripe of cobalt. Handles with cobalt brushed around ends along top edge, further accented with vertical dashes of cobalt underneath. Excellent decoration and color with thick, vibrant cobalt over a light gray ground Impressed under one handle with "H. MYERS" mark along with a four-gallon capacity mark. One of the finest H. MYERS jars we have handled. Significant in-the-firing loss to one handle, which is glazed-over. A pre-firing dent below rim was brushed over with cobalt prior to firing. Small chip on interior of rim. Short hairline from rim on front. Large, very tight Y-shaped line on reverse, only partially visible on interior, and possibly an in-the-firing flaw. Large chips at bottom edge of jar, visible on underside, likely an in-the-firing flaw.
