Extremely Rare July 4, 1833, Maysville, KY Stoneware Pitcher - Probably Earliest Dated Example of Kentucky Pottery

Lot 61: Extremely Rare July 4, 1833, Maysville, KY Stoneware Pitcher - Probably Earliest Dated Example of Kentucky Pottery

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

Description: Important and Possibly Unique One-Gallon Independence Day Stoneware Pitcher with Cobalt Tree Decoration, Inscribed in Cobalt "Evan G. Ricketts / July 4th, 1833," Maysville, Kentucky origin, 1833, finely-potted ovoid pitcher with narrow, flaring collar accented with incised lines, and fashioned with a heavily-pinched spout. Decorated around the body with the finely-slip-trailed cobalt inscription "Evan G. Ricketts / July 4th 1833" along with a cobalt tree. Distinctive saw-toothed one-gallon capacity mark impressed below spout. This recently-discovered pitcher is likely the earliest dated example of Kentucky pottery known. Evan Griffith Ricketts (1785-1874) was born in Cecil County, MD, and married Hannah Travers in that state on May 28, 1812. The couple immediately moved west, settling in Maysville, KY, by February 8, 1813, when their first child was born. Evan G. Ricketts is listed as a potter in the 1850 census (the first census to list occupations) and clearly began manufacturing stoneware before making this pitcher in 1833. Further research is required to determine when and where Ricketts first began his operation; however, he is certainly one of the pioneer stoneware potters of Maysville and predates the well-known Isaac Thomas, who began potting in 1834. An important new discovery in Southern stoneware. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, consigned from Minnesota. Large, sealed U-shaped crack extending from rim to left of handle, underneath handle, and up opposite side of handle. Two filled and colored chip on interior of rim. H 10".

Extremely Rare Redware Bowl with Slip-Trailed Lines and Tulips attrib. Peter Bell, Hagerstown, MD

Lot 66: Extremely Rare Redware Bowl with Slip-Trailed Lines and Tulips attrib. Peter Bell, Hagerstown, MD

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

Description: Exceedingly Rare and Important Glazed Redware Bowl with Distinctive Slip Tulip Decoration, attributed to Peter Bell, Hagerstown, MD, circa 1815, finely-potted bowl with rounded foot and triple-beaded rim in the Hagerstown style. Decorated with manganese slip on the interior with Bell-style tulips extending from a central stem surrounded by several rows of stripes, a wavy stripe at the shoulder, and a final circumferential stripe at the rim. This bowl is possibly one of two of the earliest examples of pottery decorated with the Bells' prolific tulip decoration, and can be viewed as a predecessor of later designs used by Peter Bell's descendants. A bowl with nearly identical decoration was sold at auction by Crocker Farm, Inc. in July of 2009. Variants of this motif would be used for several decades by Peter Bell's sons, John, Samuel, and Solomon, as well as his grandchildren in both Waynesboro and Strasburg. For an example of John Bell pottery using a variation of this design, see H.E. Comstock's The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 116, fig. 4.96. For an example of similarly-decorated Samuel Bell stoneware, see Comstock, p. 267, fig. 5.19. Numerous rim chips. Wear to interior. H 3" ; Diameter 12".
