Outstanding Glazed Redware Jar with Copper Slip Decoration, attributed to Edward William Farrar, Middlebury, VT, circa 1825-1835, ovoid jar with angled shoulder, tall, heavily-tooled collar, and ribbed lug handles with depressed terminals. Shoulder decorated with elaborate sawtoothed coggled decoration in a crossing pattern above a circumferential band of the same coggling. This treatment also appears along the top edge of the rim. Slip-trailed copper wavy line decoration to shoulder, midsection, and collar. Manganese spot decoration to shoulder and copper touches to rim. Surface covered in a clear lead glaze over a colorful, mottled-orange ground. Farrar's redware jars rank among the most elaborately thrown and decorated examples of the form in all of New England redware. A related example with draped copper slip-trailing resides in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Provenance: From a recently-surfaced CA collection. Very nice condition. A 3" crack from rim. A 1 3/8" Y-shaped line on underside, forming a 1" tall Y at base, not visible on interior. The glaze survives in remarkable condition with minimal wear and no flakes. H 8 1/2".
