Very Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Presentation Preserve Jar, Inscribed "Peach" and Initialed "RMC", probably Crolius Family, Manhattan, New York, early 19th century, cylindrical jar with tapered shoulder and applied lug handles, featuring the finely-incised inscription, "Peach", on the front, and the initials, "RMC", on the reverse. Cobalt highlights to incising. This jar is related to at least three other preserve jars, which may have been made by a member of the Crolius family of Manhattan, NY for various relatives. One is a smaller jar, incised "PLUMBS" and "JC," possibly for John Crolius. A second jar, currently in a New York City museum collection, bears another fruit name and the initials "EC". A third, inscribed "Pickles and "HC", was sold through Crocker Farm, Inc. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with a glazed-over base chip and a very minor base nick. H 10".
