Lot 0211
American stoneware jug, early 19th c., stamped David Morgan (active c.1797-1802), New York, cobalt slip swag-and-heart design cartouche, pulled strap handle, brushed cobalt highlights to handle terminals, approx 17"h, 11"diam, 12.5lbs Start Price: $1500.00


Regarding: Lot 211- In my opinion, the rim has an old chip or irregularity. The handle has stress lines to top and bottom. The overall jug has some discoloration around the body (shown in attached images). There is a brown spot on body as well. There are a great many characteristics which I believe may be intrinsic to the firing process including pitting, several raised areas, firing flaws, areas with lines and holes where it appears to have popped?... crazing and stress lines in body. Underfoot is as pictured with a chip to bottom.

A blacklight examination was done and I have attached the images via Dropbox.
