Four-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Incised Floral Decoration, Stamped "J. REMMEY / MANHATTAN-WELLS / NEW-YORK", circa 1810, ovoid jar tooled shoulder and flared rim, the reverse decorated with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a daisy with overlapping petals and incised details to the leaves and petal tips. Front impressed with the cobalt-highlighted maker's mark of John Remmey, III. Heavy cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The Manhattan stoneware of John Remmey III is typically not known for the quality of its incised decoration. This jar, however, features a particularly fine incised floral motif for this maker. Additionally, this jar is believed to be one of the largest surviving examples of signed stoneware by John Remmey III. It is the largest piece by this potter that we have ever offered. Missing both handles. Old drill marks in handle nubs, created when the jar's handles were repaired at some point. An in-the-firing indentation on front. A 7/8" rim chip on reverse. A short, minor line in rim on side of jar. A faint 3 1/2" surface line to base, continuing 1 1/4" onto underside, as well as some faint lines to shoulder area, all typical of stoneware of this age and origin. A large in-the-making splash of amber-colored slip below one handle. H 15".
