Rare and Fine One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Floral Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, circa 1750-1790, ovoid jar with footed base, heavily-tooled shoulder, and flared rim, decorated around the shoulder with three slip-trailed flowers featuring scalloped blossoms and long, leafy stems. This decoration is unusually fine for the period, as most decorators relied on more-abstract watch spring motifs, and is the first we have seen of this style. Provenance: Property of a New York State collector. Two long, in-the-firing separation lines to rim area, which are glazed over and not visible on the interior. A short, glazed-over separation in rim. A tight spider line on underside. A 1 1/4" in-the-firing contact mark / chip near base. A 1 1/4" flake to top of rim, possibly in-the-firing, adjacent to a chip on side of rim. H 9 3/4".
