Phenomenal Face Vessel. Important Large-Sized Stoneware Two-Sided Face Pitcher with Profuse Cobalt Floral Decoration, attributed to Elisha B. Hyssong, Cassville, PA, circa 1850. A relatively small number of American cobalt-decorated stoneware face vessels are known, and few have come to auction over the past several decades. The exceptional size and form of this example rank it among the very best, if not the best, of its category to ever come to auction. Crocker Farm
