Unusual Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Impressed Decoration, Stamped "COMMERAWS STONEWARE," Thomas Commeraw, Manhattan, NY, circa 1815, ovoid jar with footed base, flared rim, and open loop handles, decorated on the front and back with an impressed and cobalt-highlighted design of swags interspersed with stylized, elliptical tassels. Additional cobalt highlights to maker's mark and handle terminals. The tassel variant found on this jar is significantly rarer than the tri-lobed stamp typically found on Commeraw's work. This detail, coupled with the lesser-seen narrow opening of the jar, make this work an unusual example. Heavy chips to base. Two conjoined contact marks on reverse. Small piece adhered to side under one handle. A 6" diagonal line on front below maker's mark. H 14 1/4".
