Antique Stoneware: Superb 19thc. New England Crock W/ Rare "taunton Blue Bird" For Sale
This Rare 2Gal. "Taunton Blue Bird" Crock is absolutely stunning. The Cobalt decoration is big, bold and flawless; a perfectly executed Slip-Trailed design. This folky Bird is heavily shaded and perched on a thick, dotted twig. Clearly impressed on the shoulder: F,T, WRIGHT & SON, TAUNTON, MASS. There should be periods, rather than commas (F.T. WRIGHT), but this stamp error only adds to the appeal! Franklin Wright (and his son) ran this Massachusetts stoneware manufactory for 10 years, beginning in 1866. Fine, consistent Salt Glaze exterior; Albany Slip inside; some age-appropriate mineral stains on the rim and inside edge. A few insignificant nicks on the inner rim; otherwise in excellent overall condition! No cracks, repaired damage, restorations or other excuses! This is undoubtedly the best Bird-Decorated example I have seen from this MA pottery. Measures 10-1/4"W x 9"H overall. the base and inner rim diameters are 9-1/2" and 8-1/4", respectively. This is a one-time, 10-Day offering, with Reserve. offer now if you are interested in adding a very rare "Taunton Blue Bird" to your growing Antique Stoneware collection!
