Antique Stoneware: Rare 4g Ct Crock W/ Cobalt Tulip, A.e. Smith & Sons, 1850-60 For Sale

Antique Stoneware: Rare 4g Ct Crock W/ Cobalt Tulip, A.e. Smith & Sons, 1850-60

An impressive 4Gal. Crock manufactured in Connecticut, 1850-1860. Features a well-executed Floral or Tulip decoration in Brushed Cobalt. There is a touch of fry in the most heavily shaded areas (see close-up). The impressed stamp within an oval border reads: A.E. SMITH & SONS, MANUFACTURERS, 38 PECK SLIP, N.Y. The mark is directly over two parallel incised lines, so the center portion is not completely legible. This 19thC. firm had its operations in Norwalk, Connecticut, and produced pieces for their Peck Slip store on the East River adjacent to the Brooklyn Bridge. The overall condition is excellent; just a nick on the base and some staining near the base (backside). No hairlines, cracks or repaired damage! Both lug handles are firmly applied and the interior Albany Slip is nearly perfect. A solid, well-made Crock weighing 16.2 lbs. please see photos for complete details and further description. Measures 12-1/2"W x 11"H overall. the base and inner rim diameters are 11-3/4" and 10-3/4", respectively. This is a sale- this Keeper will be sold to the highest buyer. Good Luck! Some information on this Stoneware Manufactory and its various names follows: "firms Smith & Day, A. E. Smith and Sons, A. E. Smith's Sons, A. E. Smith's Sons' Pottery Co., and The Norwalk Pottery Co. all worked out of the Smith Pottery in Norwalk, Connecticut. In 1812, A. E. Smith (1798-1880) was apprenticed to his uncle, Absalom Day. Smith was in partnership with Noah Selleck, as Selleck & Smith, from 1837 to 1843. The business was continued briefly under the name Smith & Day (1843 to before 1848). For a time Smith worked alone, but in 1848, his son Theodore Smith, who had managed the firm's New York store at 38 Peck Slip, became a partner in A. E. Smith & Son. Still later, Smith's sons Asa and Howard Hobart joined the firm as A. E. Smith & Sons (about 1850 to 1860). Sometime between 1860 and 1864, A. E. Smith retired from active management of the pottery, and the firm name became A. E. Smith's Sons. In 1874 the sons announced the formation of a corporation under the name A. E. Smith's Sons Pottery Co. In 1887, the A. E. Smith's Sons Pottery Co. became insolvent. After the collapse, Theodore's son Wilfred conducted the pottery for one year, before selling to the Norwalk Pottery Company in 1888. Wilfred continued in the business at 38 Peck Slip in New York City."
