Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this unusual 2 Gallon Cream Pot stamped, "Albany, N.Y."
This simple stamp is that of Eleazer Orcutt and his sons, Charles and Edwin of Albany. Eleazer founded the pottery in 1853 and it remained in the family until 1866. (William Ketchum, Jr., Potters and Potteries of New York State, 1650-1900, 2nd ed., pp 163-64).
This beauty features a Cream Pot Form, Rolled Rim, Albany Stamp, and Folky Floral. The floral looks like a face with heavy eyebrows, eyes, dainty nose, and mustache! Stands 9 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1/4" flake on the let handle, a 1/2" shallow chip on the right handle, and some scattered small and light stains from use. That's it! No rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A 1/4" stone ping on the right handle in the making.
