Very Fine One-Gallon Vertical-Handled Stoneware Jar with Impressed Decoration, Manhattan, NY origin, probably Crolius Family, circa 1790, highly-ovoid jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and ribbed vertical handles, decorated on the front and reverse with two impressed flower blossoms flanking a graduated series of impressed drapes. Cobalt highlights throughout impressed decoration and accenting the handle terminals. This jar is one of the earliest examples we have seen featuring an impressed flower blossom in a style typically found on Clarkson Crolius, Sr.'s post-1800 stoneware. Wonderful decoration, form, size, and color. Provenance: Property of a New York State collector. A very large filled L-shaped section at base, which has not been colored. Reglued pieces to underside and cracks extending from underside onto base. One rim chip. H 10 1/2".
