Antique Stoneware: *nr* Exceptional 19thc. Cobalt-decorated Batter Jug, Ex:
An exceptional 19thC. Stoneware Batter Jug with Cobalt Decoration, NorthEastern US, ca.1870; 1.5 Gal. capacity. Shiny, salt-glazed exterior; Albany Slip interior- it is perfect. Wonderful bulbous form with a generous spout and lower lug handle to assist the pour. The bale handle appears original with appropriate wear, as shown. These Decorated Batter Jugs are very difficult to find without significant damage, repairs or restoration. They were used almost daily in the Early American kitchen, and most were simply discarded when damage occurred. There is a small chip on the backside, near the handle; and a ding on the right side (see close-up); otherwise mint. There is a tight separation at the top of the spout, but I would consider this a production flaw. No hairlines, cracks, repairs or restoration work. The tin covers are authentic and completely original. Displays brilliantly- the perfect addition to your Country or Primitive setting. This is a very high quality piece that will be at home in any Antique Stoneware collection and will not disappoint. Please see photo set for complete details and further description. Measures approximately 9-1/2" W x 12"H overall with a spout diameter of 1-3/4". The base and outer rim diameters measure and 7-1/4" and 5", respectively; 5.8 lbs.. Ships promptly to the highest buyer with full insurance, anywhere in the lower 48. Listed with ! Good Luck, and be sure to check on my other sales ending daily. Thanks.
