Exceptional Small-Sized Vertical-Handled Stoneware Jar with Incised Floral Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, probably Crolius Family, circa 1790, ovoid jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and open vertical handles, decorated on the front and reverse with an incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a fan-shaped flower emanating from a curved stem with leaves. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Excellent in terms of size, decoration, condition, and color, this jar ranks among the better Manhattan examples we have ever offered. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently discovered in Ohio. A 1 1/8" rim chip. Two faint lines descending from rim on interior, measuring 4" and 2 3/4" on interior, but only visible as a 1 3/4" line and a 1" line on exterior. Examples of this early-style form are difficult to find with both handles intact. H 8 1/2".
