RARE CHARLESTOWN 3 gal.ovoid jug

Very rare and beautiful 3 gal jug made by the Frederick Carpenter pottery in Charlestown, Ma. Dates to around 1812-1820. Today the referent term for these are,  Charlestown pieces.  The brown glaze was called “rust decorated”. It also was decorated with a early colonial image of a Christmas tree, a good luck symbol. Does have a very old crack all the way in the back which ends well before reaching the bottom or the neck area. Other than that, this is a beautiful and extraordinary example of early Boston stoneware pottery.
