Very Fine and Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Floral Decoration, Incised on Underside "Morgan & Amoss / Makers / 1821," Baltimore, MD origin, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and applied tab handles, decorated on the front and back with a finely slip-trailed daisy blossom flanked by graduated leaves. Underside incised in script "Morgan & Amoss / Makers / 1821". This jar was produced by the firm of William Morgan and Thomas Amoss at their Pitt Street shop in 1821. Excellent size, color, and decoration. One of less than twenty examples bearing this elusive early Baltimore maker's mark known, exhibiting the fine, light gray and striking cobalt, for which Baltimore stoneware would become known and envied. Inverted 7" Y-shaped hairline on side of jar. Tiny nick to one handle.
