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



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”)
