Scarce Six-Gallon Double-Handled Stoneware Jug with Iron Slip Decoration, attributed to Thomas Chandler and John Trapp, Edgefield District, SC, circa 1848-1850, large-sized, highly-ovoid jug with footed base, tooled spout, and thin strap handles, the surface covered in a celadon-colored alkaline glaze and decorated at the shoulder on the front and reverse in reddish-brown iron slip. Decoration is applied with a slip cup in the form of two straight stripes underscored by a series of scalloping joined at the sides by a large and dramatic looping line motif. The overall style of the jug and its decoration lead to a firm attribution to potter, Thomas Chandler, during his short-lived partnership with Reverend John Trapp, circa 1848-1850. Excellent form, color, and decoration. Exceptional professional restoration to one handle, among the best handle restorations that we have seen on a piece of 19th century American stoneware. A tightly-sealed 6 3/4" crack on underside, continuing 10" up one side of jug below handle. A minor chip along this crack line appears at the bottom edge of the jug, and a second very minor chip appears on the underside at the bottom edge, possibly in-the-firing. H 17 1/2".
