Very Rare and Fine One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Floral Decoration, attributed to Xerxes Price, Sayreville, NJ, early 19th century, stylishly-potted, ovoid jar with narrow base and opening, bulbous shoulder, and arching tab handles, decorated on the front and reverse with an impressed floral medallion surrounded by a stylized rope border. Heavy iron-oxide slip applied to impressed designs and across the tops of the handles. Exceptional form, desirable size, and unusual color of slip. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago ; underside includes a sticker typically found on pieces from the famed W. Oakley Raymond Collection, inscribed "Made by Xerxes Price / "1802" / Roundabout (sic) (Sayreville) / S. Amboy, N.J.". Impressed design is somewhat obscured by the heavy application of the iron slip. Very nice overall condition. Two chips to one handle. One chip to opposite handle. A few very minor nicks to bottom edge. A shallow in-the-firing chip to top of rim. A salt mark on one side. Some staining. H 10 3/4".
