Very Rare Blue-Decorated Stoneware Jar with Bold Cobalt Inscription, "DARK BLUE", attributed to Henry Remmey, Jr., Philadelphia, PA, circa 1845, cylindrical jar with tapered shoulder and squared rim, decorated around the midsection with a group of connected cobalt flowers above the large freehand cobalt inscription, "DARK BLUE". Decoration, form, and lack of Albany slip on the interior, are consistent with Philadelphia stoneware produced by Henry Harrison Remmey. Remmey stoneware pieces inscribed in this manner are highly unusual. This example features excellent color with strong cobalt against a light clay. Provenance: Dr. Raymond L. Owen Collection. Mint condition. H 8 1/2".
