Exceptional 19th century English salt glaze stoneware double-handled storage jar with decorative incised band on both jar and lid. This coggled, or incised, decoration and the rich, lustrous glaze are very characteristic of Derbyshire pottery. The applied ear-form handles have an attractive strap design.
This wonderful large jar stands 10" high to the top of the finial and measures approximately 9" in diameter. Both jar and lid are in very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or restorations, only a few firing/glaze marks which have been there since the jar was made a hundred plus years ago. As mentioned, the glaze still is very, very lustrous , additionally, the inside of the jar is quite clean. Just a pleasing example of the beautiful glazed stoneware that was made in this part of England in the first half of the 1800's.
