Very Rare Small-Sized Stoneware Pitcher with Coggled Designs and Cobalt Decoration, attributed to Richard C. Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1880, ovoid-waisted pitcher with tooled foot and collar, decorated around the midsection and collar with a coggled design of arrows within a circle. Coggled decoration brushed over with cobalt blue. Spout and rim decorated with leaf-like brushwork. Handle decorated vertically on each side with leafy swags. Handle terminals decorated with cobalt circles. Coggled decorations by Remmey on salt-glazed stoneware are very rare. This fact, coupled with the small size and heavily-decorated handle, make this a particularly special example of Remmey pottery. Near mint condition with a faint one-inch line in rim by handle. Height 6 7/8".
