Outstanding Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Flying Eagle Decoration, Stamped "WM. E. WARNER / WEST-TROY", NY State origin, circa 1850, ovoid jar with tall collar and applied lug handles, decorated with a large slip-trailed design of a flying eagle holding a banner in its beak. Excellent dashed and looping line details to eagle and spots to banner. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark and capacity mark. An iconic Warner design, often found overfired or underfired. This decoration, however, features crisp, dark slip-trailing and is among the best of its kind that we have seen. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in a New England collection. A 3/4" in-the-firing iron ping to interior of rim. Some wear to body on reverse.
