Seymour Brothers 2 Gallon Crock with Blue Decorated Star of David

Circa 1866-1871: In 1866 shortly after the close of the Civil War, brothers Orson Hart Seymour and Henry Phelps Seymour partnered a shortlived Hartford, Connecticut, pottery business that lasted until Henry's death in 1871. Subsequently, salt glazed stoneware marked with the "Seymour Brothers Hartford" stamp is fairly uncommon, and this undamaged two gallon handled stoneware jar with its unusual Star of David decoration is a real treat. In addition, this handsome 9" tall by 10.5" wide cobalt decorated crock is a fascinating example of scarce early American Judaica whose star, in the recently reunited nation, doubles as both a patriotic and religious symbol.
