Early Antique Cobalt Blue Fern Flower Decorated Salt Glaze Stoneware Pottery Jug:
$306


This listing is for an old antique salt glaze stone ware jug. It holds 5.5 pints (just under 3 quarts). It is a bee hive shape with a high shoulder, and the sides taper in slightly toward the bottom.
It is has a dark blue flower and leaf decoration (looks like a fern), and the top and bottom handle connections are trimmed in blue as well. This jug has some use wear and a few small nicks here
and there ( I will show them in the close up photos). Overall, it is in great shape with no cracks or large chips, and the handle is firmly attached with no damage or repair. This jug is unsigned.
I believe that the shape is earlier with the high very rounded shoulder and the inwards taper on the lower half - probably a transitional stage between the extremely early ovoid jugs and the
later bee hive jugs with vertical sides and more taper below the neck. It has some gray mottling - either staining or too hot in the kiln - doesn't detract from the beauty of the jug. Both the size and decoration are unusual. It measures about 10" tall, and 5.5" across the base. It is quite heavy, weighing
over 4.5 pounds (prior to packaging). Email with any questions and check out our other primitive American Pottery , crockery & kitchen listing!
