Extremely Rare Four-Gallon Stoneware Water Cooler with Cobalt Reclining Deer Scene, Stamped "EDMANDS & CO.", Charlestown, MA origin, circa 1860, barrel-form cooler with tooled banding, and stepped, circular bunghole, the front decorated with a slip-trailed design of a stag with turned head and heavily-spotted body, reclining on a grassy field, flanked by trees and split-rail fences. Cobalt highlights to banding and bunghole. Impressed above deer's head with "EDMANDS & CO." maker's mark, above a four-gallon capacity mark. The finest example of signed Edmands & Co. stoneware that we have ever offered, featuring this maker's most prized design, rarely seen on this form.

A 3/4" shallow chip or ping to underside at edge, including an adjacent 1 1/4" surface crack , both possibly in-the-firing. A minor 3/4" in-the-firing lime ping to bottom edge. Minor base wear on reverse. Some scattered light exfoliation to underside. Flaking to interior of bunghole and minor wear to outer edge of bunghole. A 5/8" in-the-firing stone ping to side of cooler near base, which does not extend through to interior and was partially filled. Some light staining to surface. H 13 1/2".
