Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Incised Bird Decoration, Stamped "C. BOYNTON / TROY", New York State origin, circa 1830, highly-ovoid jug with semi-squared spout and ribbed handle, decorated with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a bird with turned head, perched on a branch. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark and capacity mark. Desirable maker, decoration, and form. Although this jug is impressed "3", it appears to be closer to four gallons in capacity. Provenance: Robert Meltzer Collection. Excellent condition with a small chip to side of spout and some very minor, shallow in-the-firing chipping to edge of spout. Horizontal hairline to handle. A tiny base nick. A small piece of kiln furniture adhered to shoulder on reverse. H 16 1/4".
