Rare Double-Sided Face Pitcher Will Be Sold At Crocker Farm

An important, large-sized, double-sided stoneware face pitcher attributed to Elisha Hyssong, Cassville, Huntingdon County, Pa., circa 1850, will be sold at Crocker Farm. The auction will take place on Saturday, March 25, at their facility in Sparks, Md. The large four-and-a-half gallon size is the only face vessel known to the Zipp family of Crocker Farm with two faces and two spouts. “I’ve never seen another double-sided one,” commented Tony Zipp. Although restored, the two large applied handles at the sides are also unusual.
The pitcher’s faces are done in the style of Remmey family face vessels. Hyssong’s distinctive floral decoration on the pitcher was likely inspired by Huntingdon, Pa., potter Henry Glazier. Hyssong began his potting career as an apprentice in Waynesboro, Pa., later marrying a Huntingdon County native and running a pottery operation in Cassville in 1847.
The facial features exhibit a high level of refinement in their modeling. Along with its overall size, and the fact it is double-sided, rank the piece as an important work. “It came from an older collection, purchased over 30 years ago,” said Zipp.
