Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Stoneware Wax Sealer Canning Jar.
The glaze and heft help make a confident attribution to Palatine, West Virginia (modern Fairmont).
Circa 1880, this beauty features the Wax Sealer Form, and Three Freehand Cobalt Stripes Evenly Spaced Down the Front. Strong and pleasing contrast between the light gray glaze and the dark cobalt stripes. Stands 8 5/8" tall.
Excellent Condition. Two flat chips inside the outer rim (1/4", 1/2"), three chips on the bottom edge/underside (3/8" to 5/8"), and a small vertical scratch on the bottom of the left side. No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 3/16" clay void on the top fo the middle stripe in the making.
