Antique Stoneware: *nr* 2g Bird Crock, Folk Art Dove, F.b. Norton (ma), Ca.1880 For Sale
A fine 2Gal. Salt-Glazed Crock featuring Frank Norton's signature Cobalt Dove on a branch. This is a large Slip-Trailed decoration, with an extra sprig just above the Bird's head- a great example of 19thC. Folk Art! The stamp is not completely legible, but reads: FRANK B. NORTON, WORCESTER, MASS.; the lower portion was stamped over two parallel incised lines. This particular mark was used for only 10 years; from 1876 until Franklin's death in 1886, when his sons took over the family pottery. This Crock has nice form, slightly flared at the base, with both lug handles firmly applied. The interior is glazed with Albany Slip, with a few dings from use. There are two vertical hairlines on the rim (front and back); and one on the base (lower right). The line in front (to the left of the stamp), has likely been glued/repaired to stabilize- barely noticeable, but there. Please see photos for details, close-ups and further description. This Norton Dove displays absolutely brilliantly in any Country or Primitive setting. Measures 10"W x 9-1/2"H overall. The base and inner rim diameters are 9-3/4" and 8-1/4", respectively. There is on this 2Gal. Keeper. offer early and be sure to browse my other sales ending daily. Thanks.
