The Hullabaloo Jar from Bucks County

Daily Draw December 6th, 2012

December sixth, pick up sticks. I am having a time rolling tissue paper flowers—it wasn’t working so I read a couple of mysteries.

COVERED JAR WITH HANDLES AND SLIP DECORATION
Artist unidentified. Probably Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 1790
Glazed red earthenware

This is an eye-popper. We usually think of the 18th century as a time of subdued greys, taupes and greens, but “Hullabaloo!” look at this jar. It’s a small jar of about 7 x 6 x 5 inches so didn’t hold much. Perhaps it was for flour or sugar?

Maybe I should paint flowers like that instead of trying to roll tissue paper?

Hmmm…processing….
