Tall Peaseware Lidded Jar
This lidded container is an example of "Peaseware" made in the Cascade Valley of northeastern Ohio in third quarter of the 19th century. In 1850, David Mills Pease (1815-1890) founded a wood turning business that specialized in producing wooden containers for practical daily use.
This particular piece of Peaseware has an incredible form, from its characteristic finial, to its delicate and graceful turnings, not to mention a fabulous aged patina. It is in very fine condition with the exception of one very small and tight age crack that extends just 1.5" down from the open lip. Measuring 9.5" tall by 3.5" diameter.
From the collection of the late Lynette Miller, Chicago.
