Rare One-Gallon Vertical-Handled Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Star Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, late 18th century, ovoid jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and vertical loop handles, decorated on the front and reverse with a large brushed star motif. Brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Possibly an early work by Kingston, NY potter, Egbert Schoonmaker, who trained in Manhattan and used this distinctive motif on his Kingston products. Exceptional form. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, purchased by the consignor decades ago. A 1 1/8" flake to one side near base. A few minor rim chips. Three shallow chips to underside at edge. An in-the-firing iron ping to rim. Some in-the-firing separation lines to the terminals of one handle, which are glazed over and fairly common among pieces of this period and origin. Handle remains sturdy.
