Scarce and Fine Two-Gallon Stoneware Pitcher with Slip-Trailed Floral Decoration, Baltimore, MD origin, circa 1820, ovoid pitcher with tooled collar and ribbed strap handle, decorated with an elaborate slip-trailed design featuring daisy blossoms conjoined by sweeping stems with graduated leaves. Slip-trailed wavy line decoration to collar. Slip-trailed cobalt accents to handle terminals. Excellent form, size, decoration, and condition, with appealing thin-walled construction. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased decades ago by the consignor. Pieces made during this early period in Baltimore stoneware production are typically found with damage incurred after the firing. This pitcher survives in remarkable condition for its age and origin, with only a few in-the-firing flaws: two in-the-firing contact marks to body and a small bloated spot near base on side of pitcher. H 14".
