Exceptional Small-Sized Stoneware Bottle with Profuse Impressed Decoration, attributed to Frederick Carpenter, Charlestown, MA, early 19th century, cylindrical form with rounded shoulder and tall spout culminating in a semi-squared mouth, the surface profusely-decorated with haphazard impressed drape designs. A coggled wavy line motif decorates the surface six times horizontally from neck to base. The bottom half of the bottle's body features additional wavy-line coggling, forming large overlapping drape motifs. Two additional stamps appear on the bottle, one in the form of a curving X with crosshatched interior and another oblong-shaped design with crosshatched interior. The shoulder area includes some light iron-oxide accents. This bottle is the most heavily-decorated example of Carpenter stoneware that we have seen, and the finest work by this important early Boston area potter that we have ever offered. Provenance: Found in a Charlestown, MA home. Very nice condition with a 7/8" chip to underside at edge, possibly in-the-firing, with a short and very faint spider line extending from it. H 5".
