Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Impressed Circle Decoration, attributed to Josiah Chapman, Troy, NY or Xerxes, Price, Sayreville, NJ, early 19th century, ovoid jug with footed base, tooled shoulder, and heavily-ribbed, decorated with three impressed and cobalt-highlighted circles extending around the shoulder. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. While Sayreville, NJ potter, Xerxes Price, is most-well-known for using impressed designs of this style, the simple tooling of the spout is more indicative of New York State stoneware. Josiah Chapman, an early Troy, NY pottery owner who also used impressed medallions to decorate his ware, is possibly this jug's maker. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, from a fifty-year private collection. Base chips. Typical in-the-firing flaws, including a contact mark to left side of jug's front. Some staining to surface.
