A Pennsylvania Stoneware Mug with Cobalt Tulip

Pennsylvania, Second Half 19th Century

a finely turned straight-sided mug with "c" handle, the body with three inscribed lines and decorated with a tulip, handle with cobalt at top and bottom.

Height 4 3/4 inches.

This mug is similar to a number offered by Pook and Pook and Conestoga Auctions in Eastern Pennsylvania, and though none have been maker-marked, they are assumed to be the product of a Keystone State potter. Crocker Farm has attributed at least one to the pottery of D.P. Shenfelder, of Reading (see Crocker Farm, October 22, 2016, Lot 171).

Condition:

Four very minor chips to foot and one to rim. Glaze is darkly oxidized.
