Extremely Rare and Important Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Federal Eagle Decoration, attributed to the Morgan/van Wickle Pottery, Old Bridge, NJ, circa 1810, ovoid jar with footed base, heavily-tooled shoulder, and applied lug handles, decorated on the front and reverse with a large impressed and cobalt-highlighted design of a Federal eagle with shield, surrounded by an elliptical cartouche. Shoulder with two rows of coggled ovals. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. This jar is the first eagle-decorated example of Old Bridge stoneware we have ever offered, made approximately thirty years after the bird was adopted as our national symbol. This jar possibly represents one of the earliest depictions of a Federal eagle on New Jersey stoneware. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor in the 1980s of 1990s. Exfoliation to base on reverse as well as some lighter exfoliation to front below decoration. A minor nick or contact mark to one handle. H 13".
