Outstanding Half-Gallon Lidded Stoneware Jar with Cobalt House Scene, attributed to Madison Woodruff, Cortland, NY, circa 1867-1869, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder and flared rim, decorated with a painterly brushed design of a house with smoking chimney beside a stump and tree. Includes original salt-glazed stoneware lid. This design is closely-related to that found on a one-gallon jar, stamped "M. WOODRUFF / CORTLAND", sold as lot 378 in our July 22, 2017 auction. This similarity, coupled with the jar's form, lead to a firm attribution to the Cortland, NY pottery of Madison Woodruff. Exceptional size and condition with appealing subject matter. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 7 3/8".
