Exceptional One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Elaborate Cobalt Floral Decoration, attributed to John P. Schermerhorn, Richmond, VA, circa 1830, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with an extensive brushed design of a stemmed tulip emanating from a fan-shaped group of long, wavy leaves. Reverse decorated with a brushed tulip emanating from a group of shorter leaves, in the typical Schermerhorn style. This jar is the first example of Schermerhorn stoneware that we have seen decorated in this manner. One handle restored. Small chips to shoulder molding. Minor base chips. An approximately 6" Y-shaped hairline below one handle. Some light wear to cobalt.
