Pottery by Frackelton

Art pottery jar
Art pottery jar
Decorated by Susan S. Frackelton, 1893
Stoneware with salt and brown glazes

Stoneware jar has a globular form with a straight neck. It is gray with a salt-glaze, and the interior and upper body are glazed dark brown. The neck and upper body are decorated with incised or stamped quatrefoils and dots. An applied festoon surrounds the center of the body, painted blue. A maker's mark, "SF", and date, "1893", are incised on the underside.

Jar is similar to 1958.1318,a, and therefore may have been exhibited at the World's Columbian Expostion, Chicago, 1893. Donated in 1958 by Frackelton's daughter, Gladys F. Seely.
