Fine One-Gallon Lidded Stoneware Jar with Incised Bird Decoration, Stamped "I. SEYMOUR / TROY", New York State origin, circa 1830, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, flared collar, and applied lug handles, decorated with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a fat-bodied bird perched on a stylized leaf. Cobalt highlight to maker's mark. The bird on this jar is highly unusual in the work of Israel Seymour, who tended to decorate his pieces with thinner-formed, tree-dwelling birds, while this design appears more like a variety of poultry. Includes a salt-glazed stoneware lid, possibly original to the jar. Provenance: Property of a New York State collector. Jar with a 1 3/4" x 1 1/4" in-the-firing chip/contact mark to side, as well as some shallow chips to interior of rim. Lid in excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 10".
