Outstanding and Rare Six-Gallon Stoneware Churn with Cobalt Starface Decoration, Stamped "T. HARRINGTON / LYONS," New York State origin, circa 1860, semi-ovoid form with tooled shoulder, applied handles, and squared rim, decorated with a large slip-trailed design of a central face surrounded by eight large rays. Decorated above with two slip-trailed cobalt 6's, denoting the capacity. Additional slip-trailed lines highlight the maker's mark.

Three pieces reglued on reverse: a 4" x 3 1/2" x 3" wedge from rim, a 5 1/2" x 4" section at rim, and a 1/2" x 1/2" x 1/2" section connecting with the other broken pieces. Crack on reverse extending from damage under one handle. Rim chips. H 19 1/4".
