Antique Stoneware: *nr* 5g Seymour & Bosworth (ct) Crock W/ Cobalt Bird, Ca.1880 For Sale

An uncommon 5Gal. Cobalt-Decorated Crock from Connecticut, ca.1880. This large, commanding piece features a rare Left-Facing Bird on a Blueberry Sprig, executed in bold Slip-Trailed Cobalt. The maker's stamp is cobalt-washed and reads: SEYMOUR & BOSWORTH, HARTFORD, with the capacity impressed just below. This is the mark of O.H. Seymour and Stanley B. Bosworth who ran the pottery on Front Street 1871-1890. Incidentally, O.H. Seymour was the nephew of Israel Seymour, who operated the well-known stoneware manufactory in Troy, New York. The overall condition is excellent. Just some fry on the cobalt, a tight hairline behind the right handle, and some surface crazing in areas (mainly left side). The Albany Slip interior has a small stone pop; otherwise flawless. Please see photo set for close-ups, details and further description. Connecticut Bird Crocks are very scarce and highly sought-after; this 5Gal. will display prominently in any Antique Stoneware collection. Measures 12-3/4"W x 12"H overall. The base and inner rim diameters are 12" and 10-1/2", respectively. 16.8 lbs! Ships anywhere in the lower 48 with full insurance. Offered with absolutely . Good Luck, and please be sure to visit my other sales ending daily. Thanks.
