Unusual Four-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Floral Decoration, attributed to R.J. Grier, Chester County, PA, third quarter 19th century, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and applied lug handles, decorated with a brushed flowering vine design on the front and reverse. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals along with dots of cobalt underneath each handle. An unusually-elaborate decoration for a Grier jar, probably made fairly early in the potter's career. Excellent overall condition with a few glazed-over rim chips, two glazed-over base chips, and a minor chip to one handle.
