North Carolina Daniel Seagle (1805-1867) ten (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 and "10" on one handle denoting capacity. 17 3/4" H x approx. 16 1/2" dia. Provenance: Private Southern Collection. 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 (source: MESDA archives). CONDITION: Overall very good condition with a 1 1/8" hairline across top surface of the rim edge. Approx 3/4" chip to one handle, minor glaze exfoliation to the rim.
