Three-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Incised Floral Decoration, attributed to David Morgan, Corlears Hook, Manhattan, NY, circa 1800, ovoid jug with footed base, tooled spout, and applied handle, decorated with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a flower hanging from a heavily-leafed stem. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The decoration on this jug, a motif based on Thomas Commeraws' earliest designs, is closely related to that found on the signed David Morgan jar in this auction. It is very probable that both pieces were decorated by the same hand. Flakes to shoulder on right side of jug. Cracks to right side of jug. Small base chips and a shallow chip to underside at edge. H 17".
