Very Fine and Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Slip-Trailed Cobalt Bird Decoration, Stamped "COWDEN & WILCOX / HARRISBURG, PA," circa 1865, ovoid jug with semi-squared spout, decorated with a slip-trailed design of a bird with detailed wing and stripes tail, standing on a stylized ground. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark, capacity mark, and handle terminals. A rare example, as the vast majority of Cowden & Wilcox bird motifs were applied with a brush. Strong color and outstanding condition. Provenance: Recently found in Pennsylvania. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with some staining.
