Rare and Fine Two-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jug with Iron Slip Decoration, Dated "1849," attributed to the Trapp and Chandler Pottery, Kirksey's Crossroads, Edgefield District, SC, 1849, cylindrical jug with tooled spout, the surface covered in a gray-green alkaline glaze and decorated in iron slip with a bold slip-trailed sunflower design surrounding the number "2," above the date, "1849." Dated examples of Chandler's work are considered rare and few made during the 1840s are known. This work was made twenty years after Chandler's iconic incised and cobalt-decorated Baltimore churn (now on display at MESDA) and is emblematic of the potter's dramatic change in decorative style after arriving in South Carolina. Expressive use of slip decoration and unusually fine condition. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 13 1/4".
