Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Floral and Drape Motif, attributed to Clarkson Crolius, Sr., Manhattan, NY, early 19th century, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and open loop handles, decorated on the front and reverse with a highly unusual impressed and cobalt-highlighted design of daisies joined clamshell-shaped drapes. Additional brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The impressed daisy motif on this jar can be found on signed examples of stoneware by Clarkson Crolius, Sr. An interesting aspect of the impressed design as a whole is its similarity to the iconic impressed "clamshell" motifs of Corlears Hook potter, Thomas Commeraw. Two restored flakes to front, measuring 2 1/8" and 1". A 1 3/8" glazed-over stone ping to same side of jar. A slender 1" filled base chip and a small unfilled base chip. A faint 3 3/4" vertical surface line from base, not visible on interior. Small rim chips.
