Rare 1 Quart Blue Decorated Stoneware Oyster Jar

Circa 1850-1870: At just under 7" tall, this one quart salt glazed oyster jar is the smallest one we have encountered anywhere. This jar is decorated on all four sides and probably hails from Baltimore, Maryland, oyster capital of the east coast. The clay color is right for Baltimore, and the folksy decoration on the sides is reminscent of typical decoration on Baltimore crockery. The exuberant floral decoration on front and back is interesting and unusual, especially on a piece so small. There are two minor flakes on the lip and two tiny in the firing stone pings, and the jar has no cracks or repairs. This oytser jar has all the bells and whistles that collectors crave: unusual form, small size, profuse decoration, and excellent condition. Ex. Lynette Miller Collection
