Rare and Fine One-Gallon Stoneware Pitcher with Slip-Trailed Cobalt Floral Decoration, Stamped "LYONS," Thompson Harrington, Lyons, NY, circa 1855, ovoid pitcher with tooled midsection and tall collar with rounded rim molding, decorated with an artistically slip-trailed design of a tulip with shaded blossoms, leaves, and wavy line emanating from the stem. Slip-trailed "1" above. Cobalt highlight to maker's mark. A rare form for this maker, with an early-style design reflecting Harrington's Rochester, NY period. Very nice condition with minor in-the-firing flaws, including an in-the-firing iron ping to upper handle terminal, a minor iron ping near base on side of pitcher, a shallow, in-the-firing flake where spout meets rim, and other minor in-the-firing wear to top of rim.
