Philadelphia 1 Quart Cobalt Decorated Storage Crock

Circa 1870s: Measuring just a squeak over 7" tall, this beautiful one quart storage jar with superb dark blue cobalt decoration around its entirety was most probably manufactured by prolific master potter Richard C. Remmey in Philadelphia PA. This jar form with its wide lip would have been filled, covered with cheesecloth, and tied with twine to keep its contents undisturbed. This small crock is in excellent condition with only one tiny shallow flake on the top lip and a minor kiln burn as photographed but no other chips, cracks, or repairs. One quart jars are desirable in collecting circles, and this jar is pleasing in both decoration and form.
