Very Rare one-Quart Stoneware Presentation Jar, Inscribed "IVY" in Cobalt Floral Brushwork, attributed to Branch Green, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1820, finely-potted, cylindrical jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and rounded rim, decorated with three flowering tulip plant motifs, which spell the name "IVY". Decorated below with a design of alternating swags underscoring the tulips. Additional chain link or stylized floral design to shoulder. Iron-oxide slip on interior. The color and form of this jar lead to a strong attribution to potter, Branch Green, during his tenure in Philadelphia. While Green is well-known for his coggled bird and fish motifs, very few pieces from his shop bearing brushed cobalt floral designs have survived. Exceptional size and wonderful decoration. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 5".
