Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Impressed and Incised Decoration, attributed to Clarkson Crolius, Sr., Manhattan, NY, early 19th century, ovoid jug with footed base and heavily-tooled spout, decorated with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a plant with three stems bearing impressed floral motifs. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. A highly unusual combination of incised and impressed decorative techniques with strong visual appeal. This jug is the first example of Crolius stoneware we have seen decorated in this manner. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. Large network of cracks to right side of jug, including one crack extending across reverse and onto opposite side of jug. A smooth, slightly-recessed in-the-firing contact mark below decoration. Base chips.
