Martin Brothers Early Stoneware Bird Jar Dated 1889



An early and rare example of this sought after Martin Brothers stoneware grotesque bird jar in shades of green, blue and brown with white talons, chest and inset eyes. The bird stands on a rounded salt glazed base and forms a jar with a lift off head forming the cover with incised marks applied to the inside rim of the head and to the base. The bird has a large beak with a heavily contorted head and is an exceptional example. Offered in excellent condition with various natural firing cracks to the base and inside jar as is normal with these pieces.
