Unusual Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Floral Motif, attributed to Jonathan Fenton, Boston, MA, late 18th century, ovoid jar with footed base, open loop handles and tooling to shoulder and collar, decorated on the front and reverse with an impressed and cobalt-highlighted design of a daisy with well-detailed petals and crosshatched center. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The daisy design on this jar is different in style than Fenton's typical floral motif, which features a second row of petals on the interior of the blossom and lacks crosshatching. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. One handle restored. A tight top-to-bottom spider crack from rim. Additional lines to side of jar. A typical in-the-firing contact mark to opposite side of jar. A restored chip to top of rim. H 14".
