Exceptional Stoneware Rundlet with Elaborate Cobalt Floral and Line Decorations, attributed to H.H. Zigler, Newville, PA, circa 1855, ovoid form with flared based, rounded base and rim moldings, and ten-sided spigot at midsection. Both sides profusely decorated with a large floral spray, featuring four large tulips extending from a cross-shaped pattern of leaves.
