Outstanding Glazed Redware Honey Jar with Profuse Manganese Cornstalk Decoration, TN origin, second or third quarter 19th century, ovoid jar with footed base, narrow mouth with flared, semi-rounded rim, and applied strap handle, featuring a decoration-in-the-round of brushed manganese cornstalks emanating from a manganese ground. Surface covered in a clear lead glaze over a mottled orange, iron-flecked clay. Related in form to a number of surviving handled stoneware honey jars from Middle Tennessee, this jar ranks among the most imaginatively-decorated examples from the region that we have seen. Provenance: Previously found in a barn Northwest of Nashville, TN. Very nice condition, particularly for pieces from this region. Wear to interior and exterior of rim. A minor chip to exterior of rim. Light circumferential wear to body of pot. Light in-the-firing glaze spalling or wear to handle. Three small chips to foot and light wear to foot. Some small in-the-firing stone pings to surface. H 9 1/2".
