Here is a great antique Blue Cobalt Decorated Stoneware Jar for your buying consideration. Recently acquired it at an auction. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
Nice unique coloring and details on this unsigned Stoneware Jar. Nice Cobalt Blue decor on the crock. The crock most likely dates to the circa 1880s period.
We see no cracks or hairlines to the crock. Sounds good when "thumped". We see a couple of minor chips that are on the bottom and some browning of the finish. A small chip in one spot on the side, see pic. The finish on the jar shows spidering or crazing, most notably along the bottom half of the jar. A 1/2" indentation about 2/3 of the way up on one side. A couple of minor chips along the top rim, one with a hairline that emanates across the lip and 1/2" down the side. A brown stain on a 1" section of the top rim that shows on the side as well.
There is a Cobalt Blue design that drapes down about a 1/3 of the side of the jar from the top. Some blue dotting below that. The inside of the jar is done in a brown finish.
The Antique Stoneware Jar is 8-7/8" tall, by 5-1/8" across at the top outside, by 5-5/8" wide at the base. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
