Monumental North Carolina, Catawba Valley, 10-gallon alkaline glaze pottery storage jar. Ovoid form with lug handles and slightly rolled rim, dark olive alkaline glaze. Stamped on one handle "DS" for Daniel Seagle (1805-1867) and "10" on one handle denoting capacity. 17 3/4" H x 15 3/4" dia. Note: Daniel Seagle's family were early settlers in Lincoln County, North Carolina, arriving from Pennsylvania in the late eighteenth-century. Daniel Seagle (1805-1867) made both lead-glazed earthenware and alkaline-glazed stoneware, although very few of his earthenware pieces have survived. He likely trained under his father, Adam, who would have made lead-glazed earthenware. The kiln of Daniel Seagle was excavated in the winter of 1987-1988 by archaelogist Linda Carnes-McNaughton (from the archives of MESDA). Provenance: Private Southern Collection. CONDITION: Overall very good condition with chip to underside of rim, separating line around half of the lower side of base may be a firing crack (stable – does not appear to penetrate to the interior). Glaze exfoliation around rim and to interior of jar. 7" surface scratch to body.
