Very Rare One-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Bird Decoration, attributed to the Remmey Pottery, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1865, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder and squared rim, decorated with a freehand design of a "dead" bird with raised legs below a series of conjoined swags flanking a tulip. One of a small number of Remmey family stoneware pieces known featuring a brushed figural design. A few other surviving jars with related bird motifs were decorated by the same as-yet-unidentified hand, possibly Richard Remmey himself. A 1 1/4" flake to top of rim. Minor rim chips. H 10 1/2".
