Rare Ovoid Stoneware Jar with Coggled Decoration, attributed to the Morgan / Van Wickle Pottery, Old Bridge, NJ, early 19th century, approximately three-gallon, ovoid jar with heavily-tooled shoulder and lug handles, decorated with two bands of geometric coggling, which include a W over M within the design. Cobalt accents to coggling on front and back, and at ends of handle terminals. Attribution is based on sherds with identical coggling, recovered by stoneware scholar, Robert J. Sim, in Old Bridge, at a site he identified as that of the Morgan / Van Wickle Pottery. These sherds are now housed at Monmouth County Historical Association, Freehold, NJ. Provenance: Ex-Warren Hartmann. Excellent condition with two small base chips and a minor base nick, a faint, 2 1/4" hairline from rim, a few typical in-the-firing iron pings at base.
