CROLIUS / MANUFACTURER / MANHATTAN-WELLS / NEW-YORK," circa 1810, approximately one-and-a-half-gallon ovoid pitcher with footed base and inwardly-tapered spout, the front decorated with a crisply-incised foliate design highlighted in cobalt slip. Additional cobalt highlights around handle terminals. Impressed below the spout with oval Clarkson Crolius, Sr. maker's mark. Excellent form and decoration.

Minor glazed-over chip to rim on reverse. Group of shallow glazed-over base. One post-firing base chip. Minor 1 1/2" in-the-firing surface line to left side of shoulder, not visible on interior.
