Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Stoneware Cream Pot attributed to R. J. Grier of Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Ralph Grier and family ran a pottery in Mount Jordan, Chester County, Pennsylvania from the 1840's to 1910 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 12-13).
Dating to the 1870's, this beauty features a Squared Rim, Inscribed Line at the Shoulder, and Four Cobalt Leaves of Four Brushstrokes Each in the Distinctive Grier Style. Measures 7 3/4" tall and 8" wide across the top.
I have seen quite a few Grier jars and milk bowls, but never a cream pot.
Excellent Condition. A minor 1/4" flake and 3/8" surface ping line on the rim. That's it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Slightly oval on the top in the making.
