Fine Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Coggled Decoration, attributed to the Morgan / Van Wickle Pottery, Old Bridge, NJ, early 19th century, ovoid jar with flared collar, rounded rim, and large semi-lunate handles, the shoulder decorated with a coggled column design. Wide band of cobalt around coggling and across tops of handles. A stately example of early Old Bridge pottery. Attribution is based on sherds with identical coggled decoration, recovered by Robert J. Sim from the Morgan / Van Wickle Pottery of Old Bridge, NJ, now in the collection of the Monmouth County Historical Association, Freehold, NJ. Provenance: Purchased from Richard Lackman. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with some small iron pings and a faint, minor surface line to top of one handle, and some very minor wear to same handle. Despite their significant protrusion from the shoulder of the vessel, both handles survive in remarkable condition.
