Very Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Cobalt Eagle Decoration, attributed to Barnabus Edmands, Charlestown, MA, circa 1860, cylindrical jug with semi-rounded spout, decorated with a large slip-trailed design of a spread-winged Federal eagle clutching stylized arrows and olive branches in its talons. The capacity mark on this jug matches that found on pieces marked "Edmands & Co.". This jug is the first example of Edmands stoneware we have seen decorated with a cobalt eagle. An in-the-firing iron ping to neck of eagle. Some bubbling to cobalt. Three in-the-firing iron pings to reverse. A chip with thin horizontal crack to handle. A few tiny nicks to spout. Some in-the-firing clay residue to top of spout.
