Antique Folk Art Stoneware Ink.Completly hand made,and decorated. 3 Peafowl are pearched around a decorated jar.The birds are formed and detailed exactly like the other redware and stoneware wh imsys made during the mid to late 19th century.These birds where made as whimsies in the potters sparetime using any extra materials.Whistles,Rattles,Banks and other useful forms are known to have been made.Rare piece with an interesting glaze.It looks Southern to me perhaps the Shenandoah Valley.Whimsies like this were made all over the North East.
