Fine B.C. Milburn Decorated 2 Gallon Ovoid Storage Jar

Circa 1841-1873: This wildly decorated 12.25" tall two gallon semi-ovoid storage crock impressed with Bendict Cuthbert Milburn's classic "B.C. Milburn Alexa" comes straight from the unmatched Al and Billy Steidel Alexandria, Virginia, stoneware collection and is illustrated on page 255 of Eddie Wilder's Alexandria, Virginia Pottery: 1792-1876 (Wadsworth Publishing Company 2007). This fantastically folksy jar features exuberant slip-trail decoration on both sides, including tight wavy lines, fern-like leaf decorations, and five large tulip-like flowers. This jar remains in absolutely outstanding nearly as made conditions with only minor wear and typical as fired anomalies and no chips, cracks, or repairs. It's a truly astounding example of mid 19th century stoneware from the Mid Atlantic region.
