Fine and Very Rare Stoneware Milkpan with Slip-Trailed Cobalt Floral Decoration, Inscribed "Made by / Morgan & Amoss / Pitt Street / Baltimore / 1822," William Morgan and Thomas Amoss, Baltimore, MD, 1822, flaring pan with squared rim, hand-formed pouring spout, and applied tab handles, decorated on the front and reverse with a slip-trailed stem bearing a central daisy motif. Cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Underside with finely-penned Morgan & Amoss signature including the pottery's location and date. Made from specially-procured clay advertised by the partnership of William Morgan and Richmond potter, Thomas Amoss, the decoration serves as a basis for motifs brought to Edgefield, South Carolina by Baltimore-trained potter, Thomas Chandler. The underside features a particularly crisp and elaborate signature, artistic in its own right.
