Very Rare and Important Ten-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jug with Double Handles and Glass Runs, Stamped Twice "DS / 10", Daniel Seagle, Vale, NC, circa 1840, skillfully-potted, highly-ovoid jug with tooled spout and two applied, ribbed handles at the shoulder, the surface covered in an olive-green alkaline glaze with darker flowing glaze runs descending at each side. Shoulder additionally decorated in four places with glass runs exhibiting beautiful, blue-and-white rutile, a desirable treatment only occasionally seen in his work. Shoulder impressed on front and reverse with the initials "DS" and capacity mark "10". This recently-surfaced jug embodies all of the characteristics of Seagle's best work in its large size, rare double-handled form, and striking glaze with rutile-highlighted glass runs. The finest example of Daniel Seagle stoneware that we have ever offered. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in NC. A 5/8" hole to shoulder with faint 7" hairline extending vertically through it. One handle with a 1" flake to side and other minor roughness. Two tiny chips to spout. H 21 1/2".
