5 Gallon Beaver County PA Ovoid Stoneware Jar

Circa 1850s: Beaver County stoneware was made to last, and this five gallon semi-ovoid cream jar with floral decoration is a testament to the longevity of the county's pottery production. Weighing in at a stout 21 pounds, this jar stands 14" tall and is just over 12" wide from ear to ear. The potters in Beaver County put a thin gray slip over their pots before they brushed on the cobalt and fired them in the kiln. This slip gave their salt glazed wares an outstanding shine and makes the glaze on these pieces some of the best produced in 19th century Pennsylvania. This jar is in excellent condition with two minor flakes to the inside rim and no cracks or repairs. The large semi-ovoid form is graceful, ad the lip is prefectly potted. This is a handsome piece of mid 19th century Western Pennsylvania stoneware.
