Extremely Rare Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Jar with Impressed Rosette Decoration, possibly Henne Family, Shartlesville, Berks County, PA, early to mid 19th century, ovoid jar with flared rim and open loop handles, decorated with incised combing around the shoulder, impressed with four cobalt-highlighted rosettes. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. While the Henne family is not known for producing stoneware, the distinctive impressed decoration on this jar is related to signed examples of Joseph S. Henne redware, made in Shartlesville, Berks County, PA. Cracks in underside, extending up body of jar in several places, the longest extending 5 1/2" up side of jar under left handle. Bottom appears unstable, and rattles when tapped.
