Very Rare Half-Gallon Iron-Decorated Stoneware Jug with Impressed Design, Stamped "S. AMBOY. N. JERSY", Thomas Warne and Joshua Letts, South Amboy, NJ, early 19th century, small-sized, highly-ovoid jug with heavily-tooled spout, the front decorated with an impressed, scallop-edged drape motif, highlighted in reddish-brown iron slip. Impressed above with the large maker's mark, "S. AMBOY N. JERSY", brushed over in iron slip. Additional brushed iron slip highlights to handle terminals. Exceptional size. The smallest Warne & Letts jug we have ever offered. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with two in-the-firing contact marks to spout and a minuscule base nick. Some old traces of gray paint to surface are unrelated to any sort of restoration. H 9 1/4".
