Very Rare Molded Stoneware Pitcher with Figural Handle, Stamped "D. & J. HENDERSON / Jersey City", circa 1829-1833, finely-molded pitcher with pedestal base, relief bearded satyr's head, scrollwork, and acanthus leaf motifs to body, and grape vine motif to spout. Handle in the form of a satyr clutching a reed pipe and staff. Underside impressed with circular "D. &. J. Henderson / Jersey City" maker's mark. Pieces produced at this short-lived manufactory represent some of the finest molded ware produced in 19th century America. Marked examples are quite unusual. A pitcher of identical form is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, NY. This lot survives in remarkable condition for its age, use, and fragility. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 10 1/2".
