Monumental Ten-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar, Impressed "J.C M" and "10" on Handles, possibly Daniel Seagle, Lincoln County, NC origin, circa 1840, large-sized, rotund jar with thin, semi-rounded rim, and curved lug handles, the surface covered in a mottled green alkaline glaze with heavier glaze runs at the handle terminals. One handle impressed, "J. C M", and opposite handle impressed "10". This jar exhibits a highly-skilled potting style closely-related to the work of Daniel Seagle. The mark "J. C M" remains a mystery, but possibly refers to a merchant or potter associate of Seagle. This jar's wonderful, ball-shaped form is made all-the-more impressive by the piece's monumental size. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently discovered in North Carolina. A 4" inverted Y-shaped hairline from rim. H 17".
