An ovoid jar stamped by the maker Swan & States of Stonington, CT, dating it between 1823 and 1834.  It measures approximately 13" tall and the width across the top is about 9-1/8" in diameter.  There is a chip to the left handle as you face the jar measuring about 5/8" in width.  Another smaller, more shallow chip to the rim, just above the right side handle, measuring about 3/8" in width.  There is a four-way hairline on the lower body, front left (see photos - the hairline is not visible from the inside of the jar).  Another, smaller four way hairline on the left side of the body, beneath the handle.  Some drippy staining around the top, and remnants of some red paint beneath the handles.
