Rare Anna Pottery Rockingham or Flint Enamel Glazed Stoneware Pig Flask, Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick, Anna, IL, circa 1885, molded flask in the form of a reclining pig with spout at rear, incised details to face and hooves, and anatomically-correct underside. Surface covered in a dark-mustard Rockingham glaze over a gray clay ground. Underside incised with illegible wording in the Kirkpatrick style. Relatively few Rockingham-glazed Anna pig flasks have survived. When found, they typically feature a mottled reddish-brown glaze with areas of cream-colored clay showing through the lighter-glazed areas. This flask is the first that we have seen in this color, and may actually be the Kirkpatricks' attempt at producing a flask in flint enamel. Excellent condition with a minor chip to spout and some in-the-firing bubbling to glaze on underside. L 7".
