Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Decorated Stoneware Butter Crock.
This crock is easily attributed to Richard Remmey who made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1870, this beauty features a Finely Tooled Rim, Two Brushed Cobalt Leaves on Each Side, and Cobalt Accent at the Handle Terminals with Additional Petals Below. Each leaf is comprised of seven strokes of cobalt. Measures 5 1/4" tall and 8 1/4" wide across the top.
Very Good Condition. Two flat 1/4" chips on the rim, a 3/4" hairline from the rim to the handle on one side, and two chips on the base (1/4", 1/2"). No inner rim chips, cracks, stains, or restoration.
