Extremely Rare and Important Miniature Stoneware Pitcher with Cobalt Decoration, Stamped "MANUFACTURED / BY / R.C. REMMEY & SON / PHILADA, / PA.," circa 1895, molded pitcher with small loop handle, the surface covered in a whitish Bristol slip glaze and decorated with brushed foliate devices to the spout and color. Front impressed with the oval, navy-blue maker's mark, "MANUFACTURED / BY / R.C. REMMEY & SON / PHILADA, / PA." Pitchers of this type were likely produced as souvenirs advertising the pottery. This example is the only one of its kind that we have seen and also the only Remmey piece bearing this specific mark that we are aware of. Bricks and at least one stoneware spigot bearing different "R.C. REMMEY & SON" stamps have survived. Among the last signed stoneware pitchers produced by this storied American potting dynasty, which was founded in New York City in the early decades of the 18th century. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 3 1/4".
