Antique authentic salt-glazed medium blue stoneware early American pitcher/jug. Graceful vessel with embossed in-mold deer with fawn under a spreading tree that runs along the top. Deer is standing on the grassy forest bed which wraps around the pitcher near the bottom. Beneath the forest bed is a undulating curving embossed band. The pitcher is glazed inside and out, but has a dry foot with a middle seam across the bottom (this information can help in identifying the maker). A beautiful example of antique salt-glazed stoneware from late 1800s to the early 1900s. Please note the condition below.
Size: 8-1/4 inches tall x 5-1/8 inches across top not including handle
Pitcher Weight: 3lbs 7oz
Condition: Chip (1/4" x 1/8") on rim opposite the "deer side". One thin stress crack originating from the chip, that fades out 1/3 the way down the side. One very thin stress crack on that same side fading away just a bit lower than the previous one. Deer side of the pitcher has a stress crack running down over the deer to the bottom with another extremely thin crack or glaze crack curving to the left at deer's chest level fading into nothing. About 5/8" from there is a crack beginning at the top and curving in a half circle back up to the top. It has a nick area in it. Except for the first chip mentioned the stress cracks are not overly obvious. Pitcher is very thick and the chip and cracks are very stable (Not easy to find one of these stoneware pieces without stress cracks or chips) No chips or cracks on lip or handle. No chips or cracks on the bottom. Rich blue color throughout. Nice dry bottom with center seam.
