Very Rare Twelve-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Jar, Stamped "o DS *," Daniel Seagle, Lincoln County, NC, circa 1840, exceptionally large-sized, ovoid jar with applied pocket handles and thin, semi-rounded rim, the surface covered in an olive-green alkaline glaze. Impressed on one handle with the mark, "o D S *" and on the opposite handle with the number, "12." Featuring Seagle's highly-skilled potting, this jar is thrown in a rarely-seen twelve-gallon capacity. It is the first example of Seagle's work in this size that we have offered. Adding rarity is the use of Seagle's scarcer maker's stamp, which features his initials flanked by a circle and a star. Very nice condition. Two 1 1/2" rim chips and a shallow 1/2" rim chip. A faint 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" X-shaped surface line shoulder. A tight 2" line to underside extending 7 1/4" up body of jar. H 19 1/2".
