Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Crock with Flying Bird Landing on a Flower.
This is easily attributed to Barnabas Edmands who ran the pottery in Charlestown, Massachusetts from 1827-1852 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 49).
This beauty features a Bird Flying toward a Large Flower. The bird has a folk art simplicity with two brushstrokes making the body, two the tail feathers, and five the wings. The eye was impressed into the clay. The flower has six leaves and a blossom with eight petals and 8 center dots.
Good Condition. A 4 1/2" hairline from the rim to the right of the decoration (closeup 1), a 3 1/2" hairline under the left handle that intersects a 6" horizontal line near the base and wraps under across the bottom, and a "Y" shaped hairline on the back bottom that intersects a 6" horizontal line near the base and wraps under across the bottom (closeup 2). All very tight. Some staining from use. No chips or restoration.
