Outstanding Five-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar with Two-Color-Slip Floral Decoration, attributed to the Collin Rhodes Pottery, Edgefield District, SC, circa 1850, large-sized, highly-ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, tapered rim, and applied lug handles, the surface covered in a streaky light-olive glaze and decorated on the front and reverse with different floral motifs executed in brushed iron and slip-trailed kaolin slips. One side depicts a stemmed tulip with fan-shaped leaves including fine details to the interiors of the blossom and leaves. The other side features a related design that incorporates a daisy blossom at the base of the tulip. Rhodes two-color-slip pieces are among the most artistically-decorated stoneware objects from the region and today are considered scarce. The floral motifs on this example are noteworthy in their sizes, each measuring approximately ten-and-a-half inches in height Provenance: Recently discovered in South Carolina. One side with a professionally-restored, approximately 3 3/4" x 1" section to rim and a tight, approximately 7" hairline from rim, descending from a small professionally-restored chip. Reverse side with a short in-the-firing line from rim, descending from a small chip, and a faint surface line to rim. Some faint and relatively minor in-the-firing lines to body near base, below one handle. H 14 1/2".
