Antique Stoneware: Xl 6gal. Crock W/ Detailed Cobalt Bird, Upstate Ny, Ca.1870 For Sale

A rare 6-Gallon Salt-Glazed Crock from Upstate New York with monumental proportions; featuring an equally impressive Bird, slip-trailed in very bold Cobalt. Lightly impressed below the rim: RIEDINGER & CAIRE, POUGHKEEPSIE, NY, with the capacity mark to the right. This stamp was used by Philip Riedinger and Adam Caire 1857-1878 in their well-respected Hudson Valley manufactory. These 6Gal. Birds are relatively scarce; their size and weight made them quite difficult to maneuver when full. This Crock, for example, would weigh nearly 70 lbs. with 24 quarts of liquid! Some imperfections to note: there are two hairlines that go through (one in front; one in back). The line on the lower front continues partially into the base (see close-up); this might lighten up with a good scrubbing. There are also some other "surface only" lines on the glaze surface. The rim has a two chips and some roughness; and there is glaze flaking near the left handle and the interior Albany Slip. See photos for complete details and further description. Measures 13-1/2"W x 12-3/4"H overall with a base diameter of 12-1/4". The inner and outer rim diameters are 11-1/4" and 12-3/4", respectively; 18.2 lbs. This is a sale; ships promptly with full insurance to the highest buyer, anywhere in the lower 48. Thanks for looking, and be sure to check my other Listings ending daily.
