Antique Cobalt Blue Decorated Stoneware Crock: J. Fisher, Lyons Ny Dragonfly For Sale
For your consideration, we offer this 3 gallon, 19th Century stoneware crock in very good, well preserved condition. Stamped near the top is "J. Fisher, Lyons, NY" along with a large number "3" which was hand applied in cobalt blue. This piece dates somewhere within the last quarter of 19th Century and has a cobalt slip-trailed dragonfly decoration below the signature. The clay used to make this jug was rich in iron which is why it has an earthy, orange coloring. There's very minor glaze wear around the inside of the opening rim along with a few flecks/tiny chips, the interior of the crock looks virtually mint. On the exterior, there's an old, thin, darkened hairline that's between 1/4" and 1/2" from the bottom and travels almost halfway around the crock. It's tight and doesn't appear to go all the way through to the interior walls. Also, there's a very faint line to the right of the dragonfly that you can barely make out in photo number 8. Again, we checked the interior with a bright light and don't see it. We do our best to disclose flaws and provide detailed information. All our items are returnable within two weeks, no reason needed anyway but these hairlines are not structural threats. There's no chips or chunks missing out of the bottom rim and no pits on the sides. As the pictures show, it's a handsome old crock that displays very well. Found just this week, this 3 gallon stoneware crock is a rare piece of Americana from Western New York State that we offer to the highest buyer without reserve! Good luck!
Please note: We will be out of the country from July 9th through July 19th and will not be able to ship this item until we return. It will be well packed and promptly shipped upon our arrival back with payment received.On Jul-06-13 at 19:41:07 PDT, seller added the following information:
