Extremely Rare Open-Handled Stoneware Jar with Impressed Drape and Heart Decoration, Stamped "DAVID MORGAN / NEW-YORK," early 19th century, approximately three-gallon jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and open loop handles, decorated on the front and back with an impressed and cobalt-highlighted drape and heart design in a graduated pattern. Cobalt accents to maker's mark. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. One of a small number of signed David Morgan examples known, and one of only a few to come to auction in the past decade. One handle restored. Rim chips and a few base chips. 4 1/2" hairline from rim on side of jar. Some surface lines, which are typical of early pieces, not visible on interior, and likely occurred during the firing, including a 4" surface line near base, a 1 1/2" Y-shaped surface line, and a 3" x 3 1/2" H-shaped surface line to left side of front.
