Rare and Fine Small-Sized Stoneware Jar, Stamped "HENRY GLAZIER / HUNTINGDON, PA.," circa 1831, delicately-potted, cylindrical jar with footed base, tooled shoulder, and semi-rounded rim, impressed with Henry Glazier's earliest maker's mark, featuring the potter's full name within a vine-like border. Salt-glazed surface. This jar is likely one of Glazier's first stoneware pieces produced in Huntingdon. Bearing his earliest stamp, it is also potted with an exceptional thinness akin to redware, Glazier's medium of choice before his tenure in Baltimore, where he likely learned to produce stoneware. Literature: Illustrated in Lasansky, Made of Mud: Stoneware Potteries in Central Pennsylvania 1831-1929, p. 18; Listed as #55 on Glazier Inventory List in Shedd, Glazier Stoneware Huntingdon, PA, the only small jar of its kind listed. Provenance: Estate of author and historian, Nancy Shedd, Petersburg, PA. Two rim chips and a minor rim nick. A 2 1/4" hairline from rim. A minor base chip. H 6 1/16".
