Rare Diminutive Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Stripe Decoration, Inscribed "Ack(?)," PA or WV origin, circa 1860-1885, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder and flattened rim, decorated with three wavy, vertically-brushed stripes of cobalt. A faint inscribed name at the shoulder, which appears to read, "Ack," is lightly-brushed in slip prior to firing and painted after the firing. This inscription may indicate this jar was made at the Ack Pottery of Mooresburg, PA, where miniature jars were known to have been produced. Exceptional size. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with a minor, in-the-firing ping to shoulder. H 4 3/16" ; Diam. (across rim) 4 1/2".
