Extremely Rare and Important c1750 Stoneware Jar, Kemple Pottery, Ringoes, NJ

Lot 1: Extremely Rare and Important c1750 Stoneware Jar, Kemple Pottery, Ringoes, NJ

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Extremely Rare and Important Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Pomegranate Decoration, attributed to the Kemple Pottery, Ringoes, NJ, circa 1750, rotund, squat-shaped jar with semi-squared rim and heavy tooling to upper shoulder. Vertical open handles applied at the shoulder, with pronounced medial ridge and circular impressions at the terminals. Front and back decorated with an artistic cobalt design of large pomegranates extending from a curving, leafy stem with curled tip. Cobalt highlights to base of rim, handle terminals, and surrounding a tooled band at base. Brushed cobalt number "2" on each side. This jar is one of the earliest examples of American stoneware known, and is also one of a very few intact Kemple jars bearing this decoration known, surviving in the strongest condition of any of this known group of pots. It is furthermore the only colonial American jar we have seen potted with this robust, highly-ovoid body style, and may predate the few other Kemple pieces known, relating more closely to the Germanic origins of American stoneware. See The Eighteenth-Century New Jersey Stoneware Potteries of Captain James Morgan and the Kemple Family by Golderg, Warwick, and Warwick in Ceramics in America 2008. Provenance: Recently discovered in the Midwestern United States. Excellent condition with chipping to edge of one handle, two minor nicks to opposite handle, and some minor base chips. H 11 1/8".

Extremely Rare and Important St. Patrick's Day 1808 New York Stoneware Jug w/ Incised Bird

Lot 30: Extremely Rare and Important St. Patrick's Day 1808 New York Stoneware Jug w/ Incised Bird

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Important and Extremely Rare Half-Gallon Stoneware Jug with Large Incised Decoration of a Bird Holding a Flower, Incised "March 17th 1808," Manhattan, NY or South Amboy, NJ origin, 1808, finely-potted, thin-walled jug of ovoid form, accented with two bands of sine wave incising at the shoulder, the neck with heavily-tooled bands and semi-squared mouth. Front decorated with a large deftly-incised design of a long-tailed bird holding a three-petaled flower in its mouth. Folky aspects to the bird decoration include an oversized eye, heavily-scalloped wing details, and opposing leaves below the figure's feet. Incised and cobalt-highlighted to the left and right of the decoration "March 17th 1808," the date of St. Patrick's Day. Likely made as a personal drinking vessel for St. Patrick's Day, this fresh-to-the-market jug shares similarities in form to both Manhattan, NY and South Amboy, NJ, stoneware, although the design more closely resembles a number of rare incised pheasant jugs commonly attributed to the Remmey or Crolius families of Manhattan. One of the earliest dated examples of American bird decoration known. A vertical line extending through the bird's tail appears to be an in-the-firing flaw, as is a glazed-over dent below the end of the bird's tail. Otherwise excellent condition. H 9 1/2".

Important Ovoid New York City Stoneware Jug with Elaborate Incised Bird Decoration, c1800

Lot 31: Important Ovoid New York City Stoneware Jug with Elaborate Incised Bird Decoration, c1800

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rare and Important Ovoid Stoneware Jug with Elaborate Incised Pheasant Decoration, Remmey or Crolius Family, Manhattan, NY, late 18th or early 19th century, highly-ovoid jug with rounded spout and ribbed handle, decorated with a large incised and cobalt-highlighted design of a pheasant with crest, ringed neck, heavily-feathered wing, and long scallop-ended tail, the figure standing atop a stylized leaf or mound of earth. A small number of jugs and one highly significant flask bearing this distinctive pheasant design have surfaced over the years, all attributed to the Remmey or Crolius families of Manhattan, NY. This rare group represents some of the very earliest uses of bird designs in American stoneware, and, as such, pieces bearing this decoration are considered important objects. The sure-handedness of the incising indicates a craftsman well-versed in this decorative technique, at a time when much incised decoration exhibited a more naive quality. A particularly fine example of Manhattan stoneware. Excellent condition, particularly remarkable when considering the jug is over two-hundred years old. Very minor base chips. Small, in-the-firing flake below decoration and a few other small, typical iron pings to surface. Short, faint line at base of handle. H 14 3/4".

Reverse impressed with cobalt-highlighted maker's mark of John Remmey III. Heavy cobalt highlights to handle. Despite its obvious condition issues, this jar is one of the finest decorated examples of signed Remmey stoneware from Manhattan we have seen, and an important object in attributing unsigned work. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently found in Virginia. In need of restoration. Both handles missing, including a hole in jar at one handle terminal. Hole in underside. Heavy base and rim chipping. Large, wide U-shaped crack indicates to entire front of jar may have been reglued to remainder of body. Jagged spider crack on front. H 12 1/2".
