Extremely Rare Ten-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Elaborate Cobalt Floral Decoration, Baltimore, MD origin, circa 1860, monumental ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, squared rim, and ribbed lug handles, decorated on the front and back with a boldly-brushed flowering vine design bearing fan-shaped blossoms. Impressed "10" under one handle. This significant recent discovery is one of the largest examples of Baltimore stoneware known. Baltimore pieces over six gallons in size are quite rare, and ten-gallon examples are almost unheard of. Provenance: Recently found in a Virginia home. Excellent condition with a small rim chip, a shallow 1" base chip, an in-the-firing separation where handle meets shoulder of jar, and a 1" salt drip to one side. H 20 1/2".
