Four-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Floral Decoration, attributed to David Parr, Jr., Richmond, VA, circa 1855, ovoid jar with squared spout and applied tab handles, decorated on the front and reverse with two large brushed tulips emanating from leafy stems. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Curved line of cobalt underneath each handle. Impressed bold-faced 4 at shoulder. The ovoid form and style of cobalt brushwork, which is more-closely related to Baltimore designs than most Parr pieces from Richmond, indicate that this jar was likely made shortly after David Parr, Jr., arrived in Virginia. Some tight lines to surface, probably in-the-firing. Crazing to interior of rim. A 3 1/2" hairline at base, continuing 2 1/2" onto underside. No chips.
