1 Quart Wax Sealer with Cobalt Decorated Shield

Circa 1870s: Attributed to West Brownsville, Pennsylvania's potter Stephen H. Ward, this petite 5 7/8" tall one quart canning jar sports Ward's shield stencil. Ward was only a part time potter in Washington County and was in business only for a few scant years, and his wares are considered scarce. The shield stencil is light, but it is undeniably Ward's, and the jar is in essentially as made condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. This is a very nice hard to find piece of Southwestern Pennsylvania stoneware in one of the region's most desirable forms: the one quart wax sealer.
