Unusual Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Stripe Decoration, Western PA origin, circa 1860, cylindrical jar with flared rim and tooled midsection, decorated on the front with five alternating wavy and straight stripes of cobalt. Reverse with impressed two-gallon capacity mark within a dashed border. The use of an impressed capacity mark, as opposed to the typical stenciled or freehand numeral, indicates this jar is likely of earlier manufacture than it appears. Chips to interior of rim. 1 1/8" chip to exterior of rim on side of jar. Thin 2" crack from rim on side of jar.
