Scarce Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Grapes Decoration, Stamped "COWDEN & WILCOX / HARRISBURG. PA," circa 1865, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder, flared collar, and applied lug handles, decorated with a delicately slip-trailed design of a cluster of grapes hanging from a stem with large leaf and twisting tendril. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark, capacity mark, and handle terminals. This pottery's slip-trailed decorations, as seen on this jar, are significantly rarer than those applied with a brush. Very nice condition with traces of water glass staining to surface, some very light exfoliation to collar and shoulder on left side of jar, and three minor in-the-firing base chips.
