Very Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Decoration of a Woman's Profile, New Jersey or New York State origin, early 19th century, ovoid jar with rounded foot, heavily-tooled shoulder, and applied lug handles. Front and back decorated with an impressed design of a woman's profile, featuring a large eye with eyelashes, long hair, ribbed neck, and X-shaped detail to shoulder. Cobalt highlights to impressed designs and handle terminals. Stamp-decorated pieces of this style have been attributed to Xerxes Price of Sayreville, NJ, the Morgan / van Wickle Pottery of Old Bridge, NJ, and Josiah Chapman of Troy, NY. The jar is among the finest jars of this school we have offered, featuring a particularly large design decorating an unusually small-sized jar. Rarely-found, near-mint condition with a small chip above one handle and a glazed-over stone ping near base. H 9 1/8".
