Rare Quart-Sized Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar, Stamped "I," attributed to Pottersville Pottery, Edgefield District, SC, circa 1830, ovoid jar with raised collar and rounded rim, the surface covered in a light, gray-green alkaline glaze. Shoulder impressed "I." This stamp is consistent with the impressed "slave marks" found on various Edgefield pieces and does not denote one gallon, as the jar is one-quarter that size in capacity. Its vertical collar with raised rim is a stylistic detail of David Drake's work acquired in his training at Pottersville. The base includes potter's fingerprints, left when the jar was dipped in its glaze. A desirable, early-period work of exceptional size. Excellent condition with some staining, a very minor base chip, and a minor 3/4" vertical surface line to rim, not visible on interior and likely in-the-firing. H 7 1/2".
