Extremely Rare Miniature Lidded Shenandoah Valley Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Foliate Decoration, Rockingham County, VA origin, third quarter 19th century, semi-ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and flared rim, the shoulder decorated with four groups of finely-brushed swags, fitted with its original salt-glazed stoneware lid, heavily-decorated with four groups of cobalt swags around its surface. This jar is the first of its size we have seen from this school of potting. The inclusion of its original lid, one of the smallest we have seen in American stoneware production, is noteworthy. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. Jar in excellent, essentially as-made condition. Lid with restored knob. H 4 3/4".
