Very Fine Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Impressed Floral Decoration, attributed to Xerxes Price, Sayreville, NJ, early 19th century, highly-ovoid jug with heavily-tooled spout, decorated on the front with a large impressed and cobalt-highlighted medallion featuring a four-petaled flower surrounded by a stylized rope border. Coggled column decoration to shoulder. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The impressed decoration on this jug is exquisitely-crafted and unusually large as well as the first we have seen in the work of Xerxes Price. A particularly fine example. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. Very nice condition with some in-the-firing chipping to bottom edge and a small chip to bottom edge.
