Lot Details & Additional Photographs
A one gallon alkaline glazed stoneware jug, finely turned ovoid form, the tall straight spout with two incised rings, grooved handle with high centered ridge, impressed stamp "I.L." at the front.
In the 1840s, Lefever was apprenticed to one of the finest potters of the 19th century, Daniel Seagle, and he continued to work in the Catawba Valley until he enlisting in the Confederate Army in 1862. He was died at the battle of Petersburg in 1864. Given the short life span of Issac Lefevers, the number of his signed pieces of pottery is very limited and a must for serious collectors.
No condition concerns; examined with black light; original scattered surface kiln debris.
