Emanuel Suter (1833-1902), New Erection Pottery (1866-1890). Circa 1870-1880. 5 7/8" H, 5 1/8" D rim. Literature: See Evans/Suter - A Great Deal of Stone & Earthenware, front cover and p. 79, fig. 133 for nearly identical forms. Provenance: From a Virginia private collection.
Purchased from Mary Cramer, Bridgewater, VA. Catalogue Note: This jar displays a very unusual, possibly experimental glaze by Suter. It's lack of the normally seen capacity mark also suggests that it was not produced for retail sale.
Excellent condition with two very faint hairlines at base.
