Possibly Attributed to John Swann, Alexandria, Virginia

Circa 1820-1830: Standing ten inches in height, this early and interesting one gallon stoneware storage jar sports a simple but unusual dotted cobalt decoration around its shoulder. Although unsigned, the decoration, glaze color, and form of this jar resemble the work of Alexandria, Virginia's master potterJohn Swann. Swann is known to have begun decoratiing his pottery in order to compete with the potters in Baltimore, who already specialized in blue decorated wares.
