Extremely Rare Four-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Cobalt Double Pheasant on Stump Decoration, Stamped "J. & E. NORTON / BENNINGTON, VT.," circa 1855, cylindrical jug with sloped shoulder and semi-rounded spout, the front decorated with two very large, slip-trailed pheasants with turned heads, detailed wings, and long tails, perched on the branches of a tree stump. Shading to right side of stump. One of the finest examples of this highly desirable Norton design known, exhibiting excellent color and condition on a very rare, four-gallon size. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor approximately twenty years ago. Excellent condition with the following minor flaws: Shallow chip to interior of spout. Two in-the-firing lines on underside, measuring 1" and 3/4", both of which extend 3/8" onto base of jug. A few minor, shallow chips to base. Three tiny spots of surface wear to side of jug.
