Five-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar with Iron Slip Decoration, attributed to Thomas Chandler, Edgefield District, South Carolina, circa 1850, large-sized, ovoid jar with large tab handles and semi-rounded rim, the surface covered in a greenish alkaline glaze. Decorated on the front and reverse with three rows of iron-oxide slip decoration in the form of stylized drapes underscored by a wavy line. This specific motif is unusual in Chandler's work. Broken into pieces and reglued, including some small surface flakes and some coloring along crack lines, but no touch-up to iron slip. Large restored loss to one handle. H 15 1/2".
