Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Crock with Classic Chicken Pecking Corn Decoration.
It was likely made by Brady and Ryan of Ellenville, N.Y. Samuel Brady and John J. Ryan ran their pottery in Ellenville from 1878-1897 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware , p. 66).
This beauty features a Large and Well-Drawn Chicken Pecking Corn on Ground Cover. The decoration is executed with a slip cup in shiny cobalt. Comes with a 3 gallon lid with the same "3" impression and a slip color that matches the slip inside. Measures 10 1/2" tall and 11 1/4" wide across the top.
Excellent Condition. Three chips inside the rim (1/4" to 3/4") and a 1" chip on the bottom of the left side. No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Some roughness on the rim from separation from the crock above it in the kiln, and bloated spots, mainly on the back, in the making as shown. The lid has two 1/2" chips on the top edge, a large chip on the underside edge, and chip on the seatng ring on the underside. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
