Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Cobalt Floral Decoration, Stamped "C. CROLIUS, / MANUFACTURER, / NEW-YORK," Clarkson Crolius, Jr., Manhattan, NY, circa 1825, ovoid jug with semi-rounded spout, featuring a large brushed tulip extending across the front. This design is highly unusual for pieces made by the Crolius family, and may have been executed by a decorator from elsewhere in New York State, possibly Troy. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example from a collection consigned to this auction assembled during the 1980s. A 1 1/2" hairline on underside, continuing as a spider line 5 1/2" up front of jug. Otherwise excellent condition.
