Rare and Very Fine Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Scallop-Edged Floral Motif, attributed to Clarkson Crolius, Sr., Manhattan, NY, early 19th century, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and open loop handles, decorated on the front and reverse with a stylized drape motif, composed of two rows of impressed floral designs featuring scalloped edges, each with cobalt highlighted border and spotted center. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. The impressed floral design on this jar, used to produce the two rows of drapes, is an exceptionally-rare Clarkson Crolius, Sr. motif, which we have observed on only one other example of American stoneware: a signed Crolius "PICKLES" jar, sold in Crocker Farm, Inc.'s July 17, 2011 auction. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago; Ex-Georgeanna Greer Collection. Small base chips. Some mottling to surface. A 1 1/4" iron ping to midsection.
