Rare Surviver,Huge Early New Jersey Stoneware Pitcher

Year: Early 19th century

Weight:5 lbs

$1,750.00

Very large New Jersey stoneware pitcher ,early made no later than the late 1820s.Probably made at the Morgan-VanWickle Pottery at Old Bridge New Jersey in Middlesex County,possibly the Bissett Pottery.From what I've been reading it is hard to pin down the potter exactly.Like many of the tradesmen of the day, glassblowers,iron workers etc. these men moved back and forth taking their skills and tools with them.This massive pitcher is 15 inches high weighs in at almost 5 pounds! 2 or 3 tiny rim flakes and one kiln pop where a impurity popped out during firing.It really makes a statement and is a real survivor!imagine it full or Beer or Milk!
