Anna Pottery Masterpiece. Extremely Rare and Important Large-Sized Stoneware Fair Jug with Profuse Incised Inscriptions, Inscribed "Union County Agricultural Board / Twentyninth Annual Fair / Held at / Jonesboro Illinois. / on / Tuesday. Wednesday. Thursday And. Friday. September 16-19th 1884", Signed "C. & W. Kirkpatrick Established Anna Pottery 1859", Cornwall and Wallace Kirkpatrick, Anna, Illinois, 1884. Serving essentially as a utiltarian stoneware "time capsule" of Union County, Illinois life in the year 1884, this painstakingly-decorated jug commemorates the Twenty-Ninth Annual Union County, Illinois Fair, held that year in Jonesboro, Illinois. Among the numerous inscriptions related to the fair, local businesses, and culture, are the following: a list of various categories of subjects judged at the fair, along with their committee members, including Class A. Horses., Class B. Mule, Jacks and Jennets., Class C. Cattle., Class D. Hogs., Class G. Grains., Class E, Sheep and Goats, Class F. Poultry., Class H. Farm Products, Class I. Fruits., Class J. Mechanical Manufactures, Class K. Ladies Department, Class L. Fancy articles, Class M. Paintings. Curiosities. Minerals & c, Class N. Preservers Etc., Class O. Miscellaneous., and Class P Ladies Equestrians; "Amusements" at the fair listed as "Human Race", "Ox Race", and "Bull Race"; a list of "Officers" of the fair; lists of Union County, Illinois "Officers" and "Police Magistrates"; a list of "Churches in Jonesboro"; and various advertisements for Union County businesses, including the newspaper "The Talk". The shoulder of the jug features incised business cards for "J.H. Samson. / Real Estate Agent / and Conveyancer / Office / in Court House / Jonesboro Illinois" and "L.C. Oliver & Co / Dry Goods, Notions and / Groceries. Dishon Corner / Jonesboro Illinois", as well as a pyramid-shaped advertisement for "Otriches / Egyptian Oil / Cure Rheumatism Anna Ill", featuring incised designs of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. The jug's thick handle includes a large, faux screwhead embellishment at the lower terminal, an incised flowering vine design, and the newspaper advertisement "Jonesboro Gazette / Established / 35 Years / T.F. Bouton". The sides of the handle reference Presidential and State Elections of 1884, with the words "Blaine & Logan for Prest & V.P. / Richard J. Oglesby for Governor / John C. Smith for Liet Governor" on one side and "Cleavland(sic) & Hendricks / Carter Harrison for Governor" on the opposite side. This jug typifies the Kirkpatricks' style of obsessively blanketing the surface of their pots with decoration, whether it be applied snakes on a temperance jug, or incised inscriptions as seen here. As with all of the Kirkpatricks' best pieces, time is of little concern to the potter in producing this object. Impressing upon the viewer of the work, however, was of the utmost importance. This jug was presumably displayed at the 1884 Union County, Illinois Fair, where hundreds of onlookers could marvel at the Kirkpatrick Brothers' talents. Interestingly, it documents Cornwall Kirkpatrick's involvement in the proceedings of the fair itself, listing him as a superintendent of "Class M. Paintings. Curiosities. Minerals. & C". A monumental work, which seamlessly combines utility, art, and history, this jug is one of the most visually-striking Anna Pottery products to come to auction in years. H 19 1/2".

Rare and Important J. BURGER, JR. / ROCHESTER, NY Six-Gallon Stoneware Lion ChurnRare and Important J. BURGER, JR. / ROCHESTER, NY Six-Gallon Stoneware Lion Churn

John Burger, Jr. at His Best. Rare and Important Six-Gallon Stoneware Churn with Cobalt Lion Decoration, Stamped "J. BURGER, JR. / ROCHESTER, NY", circa 1880. The lion on this churn is rendered with a head that is markedly different than typical John Burger, Jr. lion designs, and was possibly executed or influenced by a decorator previously employed by Frederick Stetzenmeyer. The color of this churn is perhaps finest that we have seen on a piece of stoneware produced at this shop, exhibiting brilliant, glossy cobalt against a light-gray background. H 19 1/2".

Important Crolius Family Piece. Probably Unique Rectangular Stoneware Inkwell with Cobalt-Decorated Border, Incised Twice "CC", Dated 1815, and Signed on Underside "Jn C Crolius", Manhattan, NY, 1815. Inscribed "C.C." on two sides, along with the date "1815" on one side and the signature "Jn. C. Crolius" on the underside, this inkwell is believed to have been made by potter, John C. Crolius, as a gift for his father, well-known Manhattan potter and public figure, Clarkson Crolius, Sr.

Perhaps due to his premature death at the relatively young age of 27, little has been written about John Clarkson Crolius (1796-1823), but as Clarkson Crolius's oldest son, he grew up working in what is perhaps the most well-known American stoneware shop. After hitting adulthood, his name begins to appear in New York city directories as a potter, mainly living on Bayard Street, the location of Clarkson Crolius's second stoneware manufactory, launched earlier in the decade. John C. Crolius was born about the time Clarkson was beginning to take the reins of his father, John's, old pottery that had been planted circa 1720, just north of modern-day City Hall Park--during a time period when famous potters like Thomas Commeraw and David Morgan were likewise working around "Potter's Hill," in a network of shops that also included that of John and Henry Remmey, and Clarkson's brother, John, Jr.

This object features an extremely rare, slab-constructed form with five quill holes and a carefully-formed opening to the ink reservoir in the shape of a recessed, tapering square. To our knowledge, only two hand-signed Crolius family inkwells are known to exist: this example and the iconic heart-shaped inkstand, signed "New York, July 12th 1773, William Crolius", which is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, NY. Its status as a treasured family item constructed by a son for his father--perhaps the most famous American stoneware potter of all--makes it an exceedingly important example of early American ceramics.

NORTON / BENNINGTON, VTVery Important Original Maker s Stamp for E. & L. P. NORTON / BENNINGTON, VT

Impressive Stamp. Exceedingly Rare and Important E. & L. P. NORTON / BENNINGTON, VT. Maker's Stamp, Impressed "F, GODFREY", circa 1861-1881. Used at the pottery of Edward and Luman Preston Norton, this remarkable survivor was responsible for impressing the maker's mark on numerous Norton family stoneware products between the years 1861-1881.

The "F. Godfrey" to whom this stamp belonged was Frederick Godfrey, Luman Preston Norton's brother-in-law, and a well-documented Bennington potter. Born in 1841, Godfrey appears in the 1860 census in the same household as Luman Norton, who had married his sister, Alice, only a couple of years before. In 1861, Godfrey enlisted in a Vermont infantry regiment, giving his occupation as "Potter's Apprentice," and would go on to fight in many Civil War battles, being wounded a few different times. After returning to Bennington, Godfrey worked in his brother-in-law's shop for many years, continuing his career as a potter at least into the 1880's, before eventually becoming sheriff of Bennington County. A photograph of Godfrey alongside many other pottery workers resides in the collection of the Bennington Museum.

Included with this lot is a rustic Rockingham-glazed mug, originally found with the stamp, attributed to the E. & L.P. Norton pottery, and inscribed "MIRIAM", the identity of whom is still being investigated. Relatively few 19th century American potter's stamps have survived to this day, and this example, used during a classic era of Bennington stoneware production, is easily regarded as one of the most important Norton family objects to come to auction in years.

Exceedingly Rare and Important J.B. PFALTZGRAFF / YORK, PA Eagle Crock w/ Civil War InscriptionExceedingly Rare and Important J.B. PFALTZGRAFF / YORK, PA Eagle Crock w/ Civil War Inscription

Civil War Commemorative Piece. Exceedingly Rare and Important Six-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Decoration of a Flying Eagle with Banner, Inscribed "WE ARE AFTER YOU", Stamped "J.B. PFALTZGRAFF / YORK, PA.", circa 1861-1865. This previously-undocumented work by the famous Pfaltzgraff Pottery of York, PA is one of only three documented Central PA stoneware pieces with an eagle design. It is a recent addition to a small body of figural-decorated crocks with inscriptions, regarded as the Pfaltzgraffs' finest work. (Among these are the iconic "Lady Killer" crock reproduced by Pfaltzgraff during the late 20th century). The eagle motif and large slogan, "WE ARE AFTER YOU", strongly suggest that this crock was made as a piece commemorating the Union Army during the Civil War, with the inscription serving as a declaration of war against the Confederacy. York, Pennsylvania, located just across the Mason-Dixon Line, was surrendered to Confederate Major General Jubal Early in 1863, becoming the largest Northern city to be occupied by Confederate troops. Between June 28 and 30 of that year, Early collected food and supplies from York's townspeople, also demanding $100,000 in exchange for not raiding the city. The people of York were only able to gather $28,600, which Early was satisfied with. Local landmarks such as the York Fairgrounds and courthouse became occupation sites, until Early traveled westward in accordance with new orders from Robert E. Lee. The anger of the people of York over this invasion may have been the inspiration for the slogan seen on this crock. An outstanding Pennsylvania stoneware product, in terms of decoration, historical significance, maker, and size. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which descended in the family of the owners of Menges Mills, York Co., PA. H 13 7/8".

Parr Portrait. Exceedingly Rare and Important Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Incised Military Figure's Bust, Stamped "PARR & BURLAND", Baltimore, MD, circa 1815. Approximately five examples of signed Parr & Burland stoneware, made by the highly-influential potter, David Parr, Sr. and a partner, James Burland, are known. Important in its signature alone, this jar also carries strong decorative appeal and significant rarity in its incised design of a human profile. The portrait on this piece is believed to represent future U.S. president, Andrew Jackson, who became a national hero in 1815, the same year the Parr & Burland shop opened, with his victory serving as Major General in the Battle of New Orleans. To date, only two examples of Baltimore stoneware are known with incised human decorations. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in Southern MD.

Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA

Eberly Eagle. Extremely Rare Shenandoah Valley Redware Vase with Eagle Decoration, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1890. Eberly vases of this style rarely come to market. While a small number featuring this form and glaze style are known, this vase is believed to be the only surviving example featuring an eagle design. This motif is consistent with a few other patriotic themes seen in this pottery's work, such as the molded eagles found on its iconic umbrella stands and the employment of a shield-form maker's mark with star on the interior, frequently found on its stoneware products. Provenance: From a Virginia estate. Literature: Illustrated in Comstock, The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 269, fig. 5.194. H 10".

Patriotic Pitcher. Extremely Rare One-Gallon Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Pitcher, Inscribed "Amen / America / American / Nation", probably Catawba Valley, NC origin, circa 1876. The patriotic inscription on this pitcher suggests the piece was made in commemoration of the Centennial. Despite being made only a little more than a decade after the Civil War, the potter seems to be celebrating the survival of a unified American nation. Nineteenth century Southern stoneware pieces with American historical, political, or religious references are highly unusual. This pitcher carries importance in its actual use of the word "America" inscribed on the vessel, a word difficult-to-find on stoneware from elsewhere in the country and essentially unheard of in Southern manufacture. The appealing addition of the word "Amen" at the beginning of the inscription connotes its production in the Bible Belt South. H 10".

Fantastic Face. Exceptional Albany-Slip-Glazed Stoneware Face Jug of a Man Smoking a Cigar, probably Brown Family, Atlanta, GA, early 20th century. Sharing characteristics of the Browns' Arden, NC work, but with unusual details such as an applied chin, small, crude ears, and a squat body style, this face jug was likely made by a member of the Brown family prior to the establishment of its long-standing Arden, NC operation in 1924. The depiction of the figure smoking a cigar is extremely rare. While popularly seen among currently-made face jugs, this added treatment is only known to us in two works made prior to the "modern era" of face jug production: this jug and an important harvest jug made by Texas potter, James Prothro, circa 1850. On this example, the potter has carved slip away from the eyes and tip of the cigar in an effort to convey the eyes' whites and the burning tip of the cigar. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently discovered in the Southern U.S. H 7 1/2" ; Diam. (at base) 5".

Kentucky Pig. Extremely Rare Anna Pottery Stoneware Pig Flask with Kentucky Advertising, Inscribed "Fossils From Shotwell's Coal mines," attributed to Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick, Anna, IL, circa 1870. This pig bottle was made to advertise Shotwell's Coal Mines, located in Caseyville, Union County, KY. This establishment was owned and operated by Percival Gates Kelsey (1841-1921), who served during the Civil War in the 26th and 142nd Indiana Volunteer Infantries from 1861 to 1862. Kelsey found difficulty navigating the wet roads from his mines to shipping ports along the Ohio River in Uniontown and Henderson, inspiring him to create and operate the Ohio Valley Railroad in 1882. This pig, created from an early-period Kirkpatrick mold, dates earlier, circa 1870. The interesting inscription, "Fossils / From / Shotwell's Coal mines" references the frequent unearthing of fossils in coal mines. Whether the slogan actually advertises the sale of fossils found in Shotwell's Coal Mines is unclear, and it is more than likely another tongue-in-cheek comment from the Kirkpatricks. However, by the early 1870s, fossil collecting increased dramatically in America, spurred in part by the "Bone Wars" of rival paleontologists, Othniel Charles Marsh (1831-1899) and Edward Drinker Cope (1840-1897). Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in Oregon. L 7 1/2".

Pennsylvania People Jar. Extremely Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Coggled Gate-and-Fence Post Motif and Large Cobalt People Decoration, attributed to John Greenland, Connelsville, PA, circa 1865-1870.

Meaders Rarity. Important Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Devil Face Jug, attributed to Lanier Meaders, Cleveland, GA, circa 1965.

Characteristic of Meaders' earliest work, this jug features a smooth "frogskin"alkaline glaze with cruder application of the facial features and blackish pupils accenting the glazed eyes.

Form, Size, and Glaze. Rare and Important Large-Sized Stoneware Face Jug, Edgefield District, SC origin, circa 1845-1865. Among the finest Edgefield face vessels to come to auction, this recently-surfaced work features exceptional size, sculpting, and color. While the majority of Edgefield face jugs stand roughly five to six inches in height, this example measures 8 3/4" tall with a capacity of one-half-gallon to three quarts. It relates in style to a small, but important, group of face jugs from a currently-unidentified school or maker. Among this group is a monkey jug, incised "Joe Kirksey", illustrated on p. 81, fig. 3.10 of Cinda K. Baldwin's book, Great and Noble Jar, and currently in the collection of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA. A second example is illustrated on the back cover of Great and Noble Jar, and currently resides in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The finely-shaped spout on the example to be auction is often linked to earlier Edgefield potteries of the 184o-1855 time period. Among the most significant discoveries in Edgefield stoneware of the past decade. A recently-discovered example, found in the estate of Clive W. Bridgham of Rumford, RI, a descendant of Samuel W. Bridgham (1775-1840), the first mayor of Providence, Rhode Island. Possible early owners of the jug include any of Samuel Bridgham’s three sons, Samuel (1842-1915), Joseph (1845-1915), who served during the Civil War in Company K of the Seventh Regiment of the New York State militia, or William (1849-1916).

Jones stoneware that we have seen featuring a house design, a motif almost non-existent in Central PA stoneware manufacture. The decorator's use of a slip cup is additionally a rare treatment for this pottery, as the vast majority of Jones's ware was decorated with a brush. This crock's appealing decoration is enhanced by the vessel's small size and unusual butter crock form. The finest example of Evan R. Jones stoneware that we have ever offered.

Iconic Philadelphia Form. Very Rare and Important Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Log Cabin-with-Raccoon Bank, Inscribed "C. Cochy (?)", attributed to Thomas Haig, Jr., Philadelphia, PA, circa 1840-1855. Log cabin banks were produced by Thomas Haig, Jr. in stoneware, redware, and rockinghamware, to commemorate William Henry Harrison's "Log Cabin Campaign of 1840". Few examples produced in each clay medium are known. Harrison, a Whig candidate for U.S. President at age 67, was considered too old by Democrats, with one newspaper declaring, "Give him a barrel of hard cider, and. . . a pension of two thousand [dollars] a year. . . and. . . he will sit the remainder of his days in a log cabin.". Harrison's Whig Party turned this idea against his opponents, presenting its candidate as "the log cabin and hard cider candidate", a man of the people, who contrasted starkly with the elitist Democratic candidate, Martin van Buren. Such banks, which celebrated Harrison with their log cabin form and cider kegs at each end, continued to be produced in different styles into the 1850s, long after Harrison's ill-fated, one-month presidency, which ended in his death from pneumonia. Haig's cobalt-decorated cabin banks have long been regarded as one of the rarest, most distinctive, and most prized stoneware forms produced in the city of Philadelphia. Provenance: From a recently-surfaced NC collection, purchased by the consignor at Sotheby's, New York, Oct. 24, 1993, lot #197; includes Sotheby's sale sticker on underside.

Early Jordan Jar. Extremely Rare and Important Six-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Alkaline Glaze, Inscribed "These Jars was made By LJ", Lucius Jordan, Washington County, GA, circa 1835. Lightly-incised on shoulder of one side with the highly unusual inscription, "These Jars was made By LJ", followed by an indecipherable incised word, possibly "Manufactor". Opposite side of jar incised with the number "6", indicating the vessels capacity, along with a long, inscrutable word, which includes a lower-case "g" in the middle. A simple incised "P" or "D" appears to the right of this word. This jar was likely made by Jordan in Washington County, GA while learning the trade under Edgefield-trained potters, Abraham Massey and/or Cyrus Cogburn. While impressive in its size and elegant form, the jar reveals heavy throw lines in the bottom half, evident of young potter still in the process of mastering his craft. The jar's form reveals a strong Edgefield influence, characteristic of the work of both Massey and Cogburn, and its inscription, referencing the manufacture of jars, is relatable to the enslaved Edgefield master, Dave. The inscription, which uses the term, "These Jars", suggests that Jordan had produced an entire group of vessels to be sold, and that this example served to identify him as the maker of a specific order. Inherent in his signed inscription is a sense of accomplishment, perhaps indicative of a young potter who successfully threw a large-sized jar or several for one customer's order. While a number of pieces bearing Jordan's distinctive "LJ" or "J" signatures are known, this is the first piece that we have seen by his hand featuring an entire incised inscription. Provenance: Found in Birmingham, AL approximately twenty-five years ago. H 18".

Rare Norwalk, CT Redware ABC Charger Inscribed

Day Dish. Exceedingly Rare and Important Slip-Decorated Redware Alphabet Charger, Signed "AD", Absalom Day, Norwalk, CT, early 19th century. This plate was made by the influential Norwalk, CT potter and Methodist minister, Absalom Day (1770-1842), as indicated by the conjoined initials, "AD". In our research, we can find only one other redware article bearing Day's personal signature, a slip-decorated loaf dish in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, NY, also inscribed with his conjoined initials. Another highly-important dish, bearing the inscription, "Day's Pottery", was sold as part of the Barry Cohen Collection by David Schorsch and America Hurrah in 1990. The Day alphabet plate to be auctioned is significant, not only its signature, but in its early date of manufacture. This plate predates nearly all known inscribed Norwalk plates, which have become popular in redware and folk art circles for their yellow-slip names, food items, and slogans. Most such examples were produced decades later, at the pottery of Day's apprentice, Asa E. Smith. This charger is possibly the earliest Connecticut redware alphabet plate known, and can be viewed as a precursor to the popular "Norwalk plates" commonly produced by Smith years later. It strongly suggests that Smith learned to produce his alphabet plates from Day during his apprenticeship, that this popular Norwalk inscription (and possibly others) were not Smith's invention. Interestingly also, its surface is not entirely concerned with its inscription, as later Norwalk plates are, as this plate incorporates more slip-trailed line decoration, in this case utilizing a three-quilled slip cup in three rows. Later Smith plates from Norwalk have simpler, single-line decoration, if any at all. Also of note is the penmanship of the inscribed "ABC" on this example; it is noticeably different than that found on Smith-period "ABC" plates, of which several have survived, and whose inscriptions are often attributed to the Spencerian script master, Henry Chichester. Few New England slip-decorated plates with signatures have survived and this example offers rare insight into the genesis of this popular Norwalk form. Provenance: From a recently-surfaced NC collection, purchased by the consignor decades ago. Diameter 14".
