Grier, Chester County, PA, circa 1875, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder and semi-squared rim, decorated with split-stemmed floral motifs above a highly unusual brushed design of a rooster with comb, wattle, and incised eye, standing atop a stylized ground. Figural-decorated stoneware from Eastern Pennsylvania is considered very rare. This jar is one of only two examples of Grier stoneware with figural decoration that we have seen.
