Exceptional Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Rooster Scene, Stamped "WHITES UTICA," NY State origin, circa 1860, ovoid jar with tooled shoulder, squared rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with an elaborate slip-trailed design of a rooster with turned head, standing atop a heavily-shrubbed hill with fence and pine tree in the distance. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark. The design on this jar was executed by, or styled in the manner of, German-born itinerant artist, John Hilfinger (1826-1888), most well-known for his work at the Julius and Edward Norton pottery of Bennington, VT, circa 1855. Wonderful decoration featuring outstanding color. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 10" ; Diam. (across top) 10".
