Fine Two-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar with Iron-Slip Floral Decoration, attributed to Thomas Chandler, Kirksey's Crossroads, Edgefield District, SC, circa 1850, ovoid jar with applied tab handles and narrow opening with semi-rounded rim, the surface covered in streaky green alkaline glaze with iron-slip "broken stem" floral motif on front and reverse. Appealing size, somewhat smaller than most of the "broken stem" jars we have seen, featuring appealing heavy glaze runs to one side. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor over a decade ago in Baltimore County, MD. Heavy chipping to one handle, with some additional glazed-over, in-the-firing lines to handle terminals. Three shallow chips to opposite handle. A faint Y-shaped surface line on underside, not visible on interior, a part of which continues 2 1/4" onto base. H 11 3/4".
