Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Stoneware Water Cooler attributed to Richard Remmey of Philadelpia.
Richard Remmey made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1870, this beauty features Carefully Turned Rim, Shoulder Grooves, and Footer, as well as a Front Center Tulip, Two Tulips on the Back, and Additional Cobalt at the Handles. This is a very pleasing and identifiable Remmey decoration. Strong cobalt on a light gray clay for maximum contrast. Stands 12 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A flat 1/2" chip on the rim in the back, a glued surface chip above the right handle (closeup 1). That's it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or stains. A surface drying line on the underside of the right handle in the making (closeup 2).
