Rare Large-Sized Stoneware Jar with Incised and Impressed Decoration, Stamped "C. CROLIUS / MANUFACTURER / MANHATTAN-WELLS / NEW-YORK," circa 1810, approximately four-gallon, ovoid jar with heavily-tooled shoulder and open loop handles, the front decorated with a wavy cobalt border surrounding the maker's mark. Reverse decorated with a finely-incised and cobalt-highlighted foliate design with splayed leaves, embellished with two additional impressed leaves and pierced circles. This jar is the first example of Crolius stoneware we have seen decorated with a leaf stamp. An unusually-decorated, fresh-to-the-market example of early Manhattan stoneware.
