Antique Stoneware: Fine 19thc. Pa Redware Crock Or Jar, Semi-ovoid, Lead Glaze:
Whether you call this a Cream Jar, Crock or Planter, one thing is for sure: this is a monumental 19thC. piece of Redware! Unmarked, but having a capacity of 4Gal., this extra-large Jar will be at home in any Antique Stoneware collection. This is a well-made piece by a highly skilled artisan; probably a Pennsylvania pottery, ca.1860 or earlier. The Semi-Ovoid form is topped with a slightly-squared lip profile. The exterior is unglazed, with age-appropriate wear and typical imperfections throughout. The Lead-Glazed interior is superb! Very reminiscent of Redware Cream Jars created by the Bell Family, with a slightly narrower lip profile. Please see photos for details and consider them as part of the description. It is extremely rare to find such a large piece without significant damage, cracks or repairs! Weighing in at exactly 15lbs., this Semi-Ovoid measures 11-1/2"W x 12"H overall. The base and inner rim diameters measure 8-3/4" and 10-3/8", respectively. Displays exceptionally (especially as a cachepot), and any Redware Collector's dream!
