That thing is hellacious. Looks early.

they were o my in business for 2-3 years - 1830s - I forget the actual dates but have it written down.

the jug is ochre and not cobalt, is in script, and has an obviously known subject - all make it rare for that area.

I keep going back and forth on selling it - but the auction house estimates are all over. I just get nervous with it displayed and having cats, dogs and kids

I have a large collection of blue decorated pottery from New Hampshire, but this pair from here in Texas is probably my favorite because I dug the larger one and my son dug the smaller one...and nothing beats digging pottery in my opinion!

Yeah, that ochre is what caught my eye. Very unusual. What a jewel!

I agree. Here are mine and Luke's as found. He pretty much knew his was whole, but I had no idea on mine. I figured it would be just a piece, or have a big hole, or be missing the handle like so many through the years, so I was floored when it came out whole.
