Very Rare Point Pleasant, New Jersey Rockingham Presentation Frog Pitcher, South Amboy, NJ origin, fourth quarter 19th century, bulbous form with upswept spout and spurred handle, decorated on two sides with a relief design of a bearded man's bust within a cartouche. Front of pitcher features the elaborate applied inscription, "MRS CATHERINE ALLEN / POINT PLEASANT / N J", in molded white letters against a streaky reddish-brown-glazed ground. Interior with large molded frog with brown glaze. New Jersey pottery pieces from the 19th century featuring references to the resort town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey are considered highly unusual. This example, with its unusually-large inscription, is possibly the finest Rockingham pitcher we have ever offered. Restoration to tip of spout. Restored chip on interior of rim. Two small flakes and some scratches at base of handle. In-the-firing, unglazed contact mark to scrollwork surrounding cartouche near handle. Losses to toes on one foot of frog. Some other minor, unobtrusive nicks to pitcher. H 10".
