Very Rare Coggle-Decorated Stoneware Pitcher, attributed to Richard C. Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1880, with Contemporary Copy by Jerry Beaumont and Don Carpentier, the first an ovoid-waisted pitcher with tooled foot and collar, decorated around the midsection and collar with a coggled design of arrowheads within a circle, brushed over with cobalt blue. Spout and rim decorated with leaf-like brushwork. Handle heavily-decorated vertically on each side with leafy swags, along with circular cobalt highlights around the terminals. Coggled decorations by Remmey on salt-glazed stoneware are very rare. This fact, coupled with the small size and heavily-decorated handle, make this a particularly special example of Remmey pottery. This pitcher is paired with a 2014 salt-glazed stoneware pitcher made in its likeness by Sunnybrook, MD master potter, Jerry Beaumont, decorated with a copy of Remmey's coggle made by the late artisan, Don Carpentier, of Eastfield Village in East Nassau, NY. A unique pair, illustrating the talents of 19th and 20th century American craftsman. Remmey pitcher in near mint condition with a faint one-inch line in rim by handle. Contemporary pitcher in new condition. Height 6 7/8".
