Exceptional Half-Gallon Stoneware Presentation Pitcher with Elaborate Cobalt Floral Decoration, Incised "John N. Carley / 1894," attributed to Richard C. Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, 1894, ovoid-bodied pitcher with rounded foot and short collar with rounded rim, decorated with two large cobalt tulips flanking the finely-incised and cobalt-highlighted name "John N. Carley / 1894". Unusual brushwork of a tulip hanging from a band of leaves above the incised name, and vertical foliate brushwork below the date. Swag decoration surrounding the rim. John N. Carley appears in the 1894 Philadelphia city directory as a driver living on East Clearfield Street near the Delaware River; this was in the vicinity of the Richard C. Remmey Pottery, also located near the river, on East Cumberland Street. A fine example of Philadelphia presentation stoneware. Excellent condition. An approximately 1 1/2" line extending from interior of spout to top of rim, possibly in-the-firing. Minor 1" line on right side of spout, visible on exterior only. H 9".
