Very Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Tulip Decoration, Stamped "WILLSON'S & YOUNG. / HARRISBURG PA," circa 1855, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim molding, and applied lug handles, decorated with a large brushed design of a tulip with pronounced stamen. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark and handle terminals. Desirable size and fine color. Provenance: Purchased by the consignor at Roan Auction's Sale of the Eleanor C. Stipp Collection in the 1980s. Stipp reportedly had family connections to the Harrisburg stoneware industry. Red labels on the jar's reverse and underside indicate the piece's maker and Stipp provenance. Excellent condition with a small in-the-firing chip to underside at edge and a chip to each handle.
