Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this well decorated 4 Gallon Stoneware Crock made and stamped by "A. K. Ballard, Burlington, VT."

 

This is the mark of Alfred Ballard who ran the family pottery under this stamp from 1867-1874 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 46).

 

This beauty sports the Pottery Stamp and a Large Cluster of Grapes Hanging from a Vine. The vine has 3 large leaves and the cluster of grapes has 22 grapes. Bright, dark, and shiny cobalt blue too!  Measures 11 1/2" tall and 11 1/4" wide across the top.

 

Fair to Good Condition.  A 1" chip inside the rim, a 3/8" flake on the underside, and a sealed hairline from the rim to near the bottom (closeup), and a rust stain around the rim from a wire once tied on.  No outer rim chips or restoration.
