Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Impressed Floral Decoration, attributed to Josiah Chapman, Troy, NY or Xerxes Prices, Sayreville, NJ, early 19th century, ovoid jug with tooled spout and ribbed handle, decorated with an impressed and highlighted design of a stylized flower blossom. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. While the Sayreville, NJ potter, Xerxes Price is most-well-known for impressed designs of this style, the simple tooling on the spout is more closely-related to pieces produced in New York State. Josiah Chapman, a Troy, NY pottery owner who also employed impressed circular designs to decorate his ware, is possibly the jug's maker. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, from a fifty-year private collection. Excellent, essentially as-made condition.
