EXTREMELY RARE STAMPED "NORTH CAROLINA", CATAWBA VALLEY STONEWARE LARGE JAR, drippy dark alkaline glaze, designated "10" gallon capacity, ovoid form with flaring flattened rim, double incised shoulder rings, and four applied high tab handles. Form and glaze in the style of Daniel Seagle. Propst family pottery, probably Samuel Propst (1882-1935), Vale, Lincoln County, NC. First quarter 20th century. 20 1/8" H, 11" D rim.
Catalogue Note: This previously undocumented jar is an excellent example of the continuation of the Seagle jar form into the 20th century. Although the Propst family thoroughly embraced the increased market for tourist trade pieces at this time, they also continued to make impressive vessels in the forms of their 19th century predecessors. For a similar looking jar made by Daniel Seagle dating from the second quarter 19th century see Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates, 11/18/2022, lot 1207.
Excellent, undamaged condition.
