Title: Stoneware Churn, Ohio, Spotted Bird on Stump, 10-Gallon
Date/Period: 1851-1875


Stoneware Churn, Ohio, Spotted Bird on Stump, 10-Gallon, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 21"

Material: Stoneware [salt-glazed]

Condition: Restoration to rim chip and to 5” hairline near base, displays well

Additional Information: Decorated stoneware churn, probably Akron, Ohio, third quarter-19th
century. Ten gallons, slightly ovoid form with a large cobalt bird [Grouse] on a branch. This
churn is one of a group of decorated stoneware displaying a a left-facing bird.

One of that group is a churn incised with the name of potter William
McBurney of Akron and Middlebury. McBurney probably trained at
the Norton pottery and eventually moved to the Akron area in the
1860s. It is not certain whether McBurney made that churn, or all the
left-facing-bird objects. The McBurney churn is illustrated in A History
of Northeast Ohio Stoneware by F. Robert Treichler, page 57.

left-facing-bird pieces.
The McBurney churn is illustrated in A History of Northeast Ohio
Stoneware
by F. Robert Treichler, page 57. A related churn is
illustrated on page 55, and bears the name D.S. Alexander, who was likely a merchant and
agent in Detroit. That jug is also discussed and illustrated in Equal in Goodness: Ohio
Decorative Arts 1788-1860, entry 104. Another Alexander piece (an 1876 Centennial jug) was
appraised by Alan Katz on the Antiques Roadshow in St. Paul, Minnesota, in June 2004. D.S.
Alexander was likely David Alexander, a farm implements dealer and the older brother of noted
businessman, J. Park Alexander (1834-1908). The younger Alexander engaged in a variety of
successful business ventures, however, is perhaps best known for the development of a
stoneware distribution network. He worked with several local potters and maintained
warehouses in Akron, Detroit, and Chicago.

The Alexander churn sold at Garth's, May 2012, lot 74.
PROVENANCE: Ex Collection of Jim Murphy of Grove City, Ohio.

From Garth's 05.15.2015 catalogue: Jim Murphy (1941 to 2012) spent more than three decades
researching Ohio pottery, often publishing his findings in short but highly important articles in
various publications, including the Journal of the American Art Pottery Association, as well as
several self-published pamphlets (some of which, along with his notes were posthumously
published by his friends Jeff Carskadden and Richard Gartley as James L. Murphy's Checklist
of 19th-Century Bluebird Potters and Potteries in Muskingum County, Ohio). His devotion to
collecting was just as passionate, and Jim amassed an encyclopedic collection of Ohio pottery.

Stoneware Churn, Ohio, Spotted Bird on Stump, 10-Gallon, entire view 1



Thomas Commeraw, Manhattan, NY, Circa 1805, Three Gallon Ovoid Stoneware Jug By a celebrated free Black potter…


Thomas Commeraw, Manhattan, NY, Circa 1805, Three Gallon Ovoid Stoneware Jug, entire view

Thomas Commeraw was one of the earliest African-American master craftsmen to operate his own business in the United States. Thomas Commeraw, a free black potter established his pottery in the Corlears Hook neighborhood of lower Manhattan in 1797, successfully competing with well-known established stoneware makers including the Crolious and Remmey dynasties.
This piece was made early in the production of Commeraw’ s stamp-decorated wares. His work was masterfully-competent; the vocabulary of ornamentation displayed indicates that the potter’ s ability and understanding of craft rivaled that of his contemporaries… proportion, decoration, and utility combined. Obviously skillfully-potted using fine clay, brushed and highlighted with cobalt slip… a robust jug with rounded foot, tooled spout, and ribbed handle; the shoulder wide enough to display the sharply impressed cobalt-highlighted drape-and-tassel motif within crescent ends centering cobalt-highlighted maker's mark…displayed is: "COMMERAW.S STONEWARE" impressed in two lines; note the reversed and smaller “S” …all above “CORLEARS HOOK”.
Condition: Very good with horizontal crack above the tooled base; couple of pings on backside; two short firing fissures center the handle where joined to spout; shallow flake to rim; scattered chips, large and small to projecting rim of foot. The cobalt brushed on far-left crescent is overfired…it took lots of heat. Sounds like a bashing, however AAAWT simply sharing the vestiges of time as due diligence. The piece is quite attractive an imposing. (Height: 16.5”)
