Rare Decorated Stoneware Evan R. Jones, Pittston, Pa. "bird On A Stump" Crock :
This freehand decorated "Bird on a Stump" is quite rare for a Evan R. Jones piece of Stoneware !! Without seeing the Stamp one would sooner think Cowden & Wilcox Harrisburg. Padecoration.C&W more frequently used this same type of Bird on Stumps, Tree Branches etc. This painter could have worked at one time for the Cowden & Wilcox Pottery as the same Painters worked for different Potterys of the period and region. It is 3 gallon in capacity and stamped ( Evan R. Jones Pittston, Pa ) as shown. The Bird has some Kiln fry and some chipping on the sides of the decoration only. The interior is also chipped somewhat, see photo #7.. No cracks, no repairs and no other chipping then what you see in my photos. It was stained quite badly and I had it cleaned and am quitepleased as it turned out 150% better. Worth the small investment to have the chipping restored by a Pro.Or, displays quite well as it is ! It measures 10 1/2" tall and 11" in diameter. Rare Crock, Low Reserve !!
