Great Early Stoneware Jar with Unique Ring of Hearts

Manhattan, New York, ca. 1800. Attributed to David Morgan or Thomas Commeraw (a free African American potter)—both worked together at Corlears Hook in Lower Manhattan for a short time, using similar crescent designs. The incised crescents on this ovoid jar are cobalt-glazed and arranged in a unique compass design with hearts about the perimeter, almost certainly a love token as a gift for a wife, daughter, or friend and therefore there is not a branded makers mark. Excellent condition. About 9 inches tall.
