Item Details
Description
COFFMAN FAMILY, ROCKINGHAM CO., SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA DECORATED STONEWARE JAR, salt-glazed, approximately three-gallon capacity, tall ovoid form with beaded ring below the high-collared neck, plain rim, arched deeply-grooved handles, and straight cut-off lines under base. Elaborate slip-trailed and brushed cobalt horizontal double feathered vine decoration on each side, and six cobalt dashes to neck on one side. Probably Andrew Coffman (1795-1853), working at his Beldor site; or possibly his son William Carlton Coffman (1822-1896) at Beldor or near Conrad's Store/Elkton. Circa 1850. 15 1/2" H, 7 3/4" D rim.
Literature: Parallels Evans/Suter - A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware, p. 59, fig. 81.
Provenance: Collection of Maxine and the late Carlton Rinaca, Shenandoah, VA.
Catalogue Note: A classic example of the high-collar form that Andrew Coffman introduced to Rockingham Co. The form was later made by his sons, as well as John D. Heatwole and Emanuel Suter. The primary decoration on this example is very unusual and seems to be a combination of the petaled vines Andrew Coffman used during his employment at the Zigler Pottery in Timberville (see lot 14 in this auction), and the tulip and feathered leaves employed later by his son and grandsons (see lot 21 in this auction).
Condition
Undamaged except for a shallow chip to underside of each handle.
