Antique Stoneware: Htf Mid-atlantic Redware Butter Crock W/ Cobalt, 19thc., Nr For Sale
A scarce 19thC. Redware Butter Crock, unmarked, but probably made in the Mid-Atlantic region, perhaps PA or NJ. Early Butter Crocks are quite rare; they were used heavily, and often discarded when damaged or broken. This piece features a primitive Cobalt Design that is repeated six times around the perimeter. The decoration is very consistent with the German-influenced handle accents on the larger Cake Crocks manufactured around Philadelphia area during this period. The cobalt design is quite similar to those made by the Wingender Brothers manufactory (Haddonfield, NJ), late-1800's. They opened a stoneware factory in 1894, but I am confident that this Butter Crock was made at an earlier time (1860-1880). Interestingly, Charles and William Wingender immigrated from Germany and both worked for Richard Remmey, near Philadelphia, prior to starting up on their own. This piece has lots of character, mainly the result of imperfections created at the time of manufacture. These include glaze skips and drips, stack marks, stone pops and inclusions in the clay (see photos). The rim has wear, dings and chips that are consistent with age and use. The base has wear on the outer edge and a 2" hairline (surface only, it does not ho though), see close-up photo. The interior Albany Slip is remarkably well-preserved, probably from the lard or butter it once held. This Crock is completely watertight with no repaired damage or restorations! See photo set for further description and details. Displays exceptionally in any Country or Primitive setting. This rare Butter Crock will ship promptly and professionally to its new owner/highest buyer. A very HTF find size; measures 6-3/4"W x 4"H overall. , good luck and please browse my other Antique Stoneware sales ending shortly.
