Item 2256

 

Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this fantastic 3 Gallon Stoneware Jar with the Brightest Blue Poppy.

 

This decoration is characteristic of pieces marked "W. Roberts, Binghamton, N.Y."  William Roberts was the son-in-law of Noah White of Whites Utica Pottery.  He founded a branch of the family business in Binghamton in 1848 and ran it until 1888 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, 71).
 
This beauty features the Capacity Number and a Large Poppy with Elaborated and Dotted Stem and a Blossom with 11 Dotted Petals.  The poppy was one of Whites signature decorations.  All the decoration is executed with a slip cup in bright and pretty cobalt blue.  Stands 11 1/2" tall.
 
Excellent Condition.  Six narrow sliver flakes inside the rim (1/8" to 1/2), two chips on the right handle (1/4", 1/2"), and a tiny stain on the back shoulder.  That's it!  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.  Very Clean glaze.
