Antique 19th C Stoneware Cobalt Flower Decorated 1 Gallon Crock Jar 11 1/4":
We are listing today for your consideration a lovely Antique 19th Century Stoneware Saltglazed Cobalt Blue Flower Design 1 gallon Crock. This crock has a unique repair to it, being a hand wrought iron strip with rivet that has been fastened around the base to stabilize an old hairline crack. This crack starts at the center of the base and goes up to the bottom leaf of the 1 flower design. This strip is 100% stable, it does not move, the crock is 100% structually sound it rings true. There is 1 very small chip at the rim of the base that is behind the iron strip. There are no other chips, cracks, and or repairs. The crock measures 11 1/4" tall x 4 3/4" at the mouth x 5 3/4" at the base and weighs approximately 6lb 2oz. The crock has a lovely cobalt blue design of 3 flowers. 2 of the flowers are the same with a open bloom pointing upwards. The other flower design is of a open bloom drooping with more leaves than the other 2. There are 2 incised lines around the should of the crock. A great crock dating from the mid to late 1800's that we believe to be a Pennsylvania crock that would make a great addition to anyone's collection. If you have any questions please email. We will ship via USPS and will insure. Best of luck and thanks.
