Outstanding Stoneware Canning Jar with Profuse Cobalt "Snake" Decoration, attributed to Henry K. Atchison, New Geneva, PA, circa 1860, tapered jar with tooled shoulder and flared "wax sealer" rim, decorated around the body with five vertical wavy lines, referred to by collectors as the "snake" motif. While jars of this type are typically found decorated with a single snake, this example is lavishly-decorated with five such designs encompassing the entire vessel. It is the finest example of its kind that we are aware of. Excellent condition with a minor nick and minuscule nick to inner wax sealer rim and a very minor in-the-firing base chip, which is glazed over. H 9".
