Antique Stoneware: Rare 3/4 Gal. Crock W/ Bold Cobalt Fern Design, Ca.1870, Nr For Sale
This is a great-looking Salt-Glazed Crock in a very HTF size with capacity of 3/4 Gal. Features a Slip-Trailed primitive Fern Design in brilliant Cobalt. This piece is unmarked, but probably New England made, ca.1870. Most likely thrown by Somerset Potters' Works or the Edmands factory; both were located in Massachusetts. In addition to the design, there are two parallel incised lines near the top and bottom of the applied lug handles. There is a rich, brown interior glazed with Albany Slip. There is a chip or stone pop on the inside (rear), about 1" from the rim. the associated hairline runs down the backside about 5", but very tight and stabilized (see photos). There is also a horizontal spider line on the glaze surface, just below the left handle. This is really insignificant, but worth noting. The Salt Glaze is thick, shiny and consistent with a pebble-like texture. See photos for close-ups, details and further description. Overall, a fine 19thC. New England Crock that displays exceptionally well in any Country or Primitive setting. I rarely find very many in this petite size! This scarce 3/4Gal. measures 8-1/4"W x 6-3/4"H overall. The base and inner rim diameters are 7-3/4" and 6-1/2", respectively.
