Early Ohio Blue Decorated Stoneware Churn

Circa Mid 19th Century: Standing nearly 17" tall, this handsome 4 gallon Ohio churn features a large freehand decorated deep cobalt blue flower and a distinctive coggled four gallon capacity mark. This particular churn form, color, and clay type are typical of stoneware produced in Muskingum County in the east central part of the Buckeye State. The hand thrown churn has no cracks or repairs but does exhibit minor chipping around the top rim and remains in otherwise as made condition with factory firing anomalies that include typical kiln kisses as photographed. The dark and thickly applied cobalt flower contrasts well with its appealing brown salt glazed surface, making it pop and seem almost three dimensional, a very pleasant visual effect.
