Tennessee Stoneware Urn on Stand
late 19th or early 20th Century
White county, Tennessee.
Approximate dimensions: 21 inches (height), 13½ inches (maximum width or diameter). Made in two pieces, a deep fluted bowl resting on top of a pedestal.
This piece, along with another piece of the same form, was found in the old M & H Hardware Store in Sparta, Tennessee several years ago. It was stored in the basement as old stock. To the best of the knowledge of Williams American Art & Antiques Galleries, these are the only known examples of this form.
