Vintage Catawba Valley Jar
Attr. J.W. Hilton, 2nd Half 19th Century
Attributed to the shop of John Wesley Hilton.
Three gallons. 15 inches (height). Marked "3. Very attractive runny green alkaline glaze.
Attributed to the shop of John Wesley Hilton in light of the striking similarity of the tooled rim and turning under handles to those of signed examples. The jar is in excellent condition, with minor glaze flakes on the rim edge, but no chips, cracks, hairlines. A particularly well thrown and attractive Catawba Valley piece.
