Extremely Rare Six-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Elaborate Incised Bird and Floral Decorations, Inscribed "A. Kellogg", Aaron Kellogg Pottery, Utica, NY origin, circa 1827-1832, highly-ovoid jar with tall collar and applied lug handle, decorated with a large incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a bird perched on a flowering branch. Reverse incised with the cobalt-highlighted name, "A. Kellogg", underscored by a Manhattan-style flourish and two leaves. Handle terminals decorated with pairs of incised and cobalt-highlighted leaves. The large incised name on this jar refers to Aaron Kellogg, a pottery owner in Utica, NY, who operated his shop with various partnerships involving George Brayton and Sylvester Doolittle from 1827-1832. It is unclear whether or not Kellogg was a potter as well as a pottery owner. He may have made this jar or this jar may have been made for him as a presentation piece at his pottery. Significant exfoliation to surface. Missing one handle. A small base chip. H 16".
