Rare and Fine One-Gallon Stoneware Pitcher with Cobalt Floral Decoration, attributed to George and Albert Black, Somerfield, PA, circa 1865, ovoid pitcher with flared collar accented with tooled lines, the front decorated with a brushed stem bearing graduated leaves and three distinctive, hoof-shaped flower blossoms. Heavy swag decoration to spout. A series of four brushed dashes decorates the left and right sides of the collar. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Impressed one-gallon capacity mark to reverse of collar. Pitchers from this pottery are considered rare, this example featuring exceptionally vivid cobalt. Very nice condition with a faint 3 1/4" line on underside, which forms two faint spider lines at base of pitcher on front. Reverse side of rim slightly misshapen. H 10 1/4".
