Fine Five-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Kaolin Slip Decoration, attributed to Thomas Chandler, Edgefield District, SC, circa 1850, ovoid jar with thin, semi-rounded rim and long tab handles; decorated on the front and reverse in kaolin slip with a slip-trailed drape design against a pale-green, alkaline-glazed ground. Additional kaolin-slip looping line decoration below each handle. A good example of classic Chandler form, glaze, and decoration, featuring crisp slip-trailing and appealing blue-green runs to the shoulder area. The condition of this jar is noteworthy, as much of Chandler's work, and Edgefield stoneware in general, is found damaged or restored. Excellent condition with a tiny chip to one handle. H 16".
