One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Incised Foliate Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, probably Crolius Family, early 19th century, ovoid jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and semi-squared rim, decorated with three incised and cobalt-highlighted foliate motifs. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, from a fifty-year private collection. A 1 1/2" in-the-firing surface chip. A 2 1/4" x 1 7/8" in-the-firing contact mark to shoulder including some adhered clay. Other small, typical firing flaws to surface. Short, vertical surface lines at base, which are not visible on the interior and likely occurred in the firing. Some surface crazing to collar, not visible on the interior and presumably in-the-firing. A 2" Y-shaped surface line to midsection, not visible on the interior and presumably in-the-firing. A chip to exterior of rim and minor nick to interior of rim.
