Extremely Rare Small-Sized Stoneware Tankard Pitcher with Cobalt Floral Decoration, attributed to Henry Harrison Remmey or Richard Clinton Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1865, squarish, cylindrical form with footed base, heavily-tooled shoulder, squared rim, and small pouring spout, decorated around the shoulder with a graduated swag and hanging flower motif. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. An inner rim to this form suggests it was designed to hold a lid. This outlandishly-formed vessel is the first of its kind that we have seen by any stoneware maker. Possibly used in cooking for separating liquids. Very nice condition with a thin 3" J-shaped crack to front, a minor rim chip, an extremely minor glazed-over dent to spout, and a small in-the-firing iron ping at base on reverse. H 4 3/4".
