14 1/4 inches tall DESCRIPTION. Pieces stamped "Charleston" were made by Frederick Carpenter in a factory built near the Charleston MA prison by Barnabus Edmands. Very early in American stoneware dating 1812-27. This one probably dates in the earliest part of this range based on the complex spout and reddish brown glaze (18th century features); later ones were more typical gray glaze.
Carpenter used various stamped motifs ie. Hearts, eagles, stars, and other things to indicate capacity. Two hearts on this jug designate 2 gallons. This is a wonderful and important example from the first period of American Stoneware manufacture.
Minor shallow spalls probably occurred in manufacture. All in all quite excellent condition.
