Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Jug made and stamped for "Bacon & Bates, Fiskdale, Mas[s]."  

 

This is the work of the Frank Norton Pottery of Worcester that was in operation from 1856-1886 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 52-53).  

 

This beauty features the Merchant Stamp with Cobalt Wash and the Norton Stylized Floral in Pretty Cobalt Blue.  Stands 11" tall. 

 

Excellent Condition. A shallow 1/4" chip on the spout and a minor 1/8" nibble on the shoulder back by the handle.  That's it!  No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  A small stone ping above the decoration in the making. 

 

It is very rare to find a Norton piece with advertising, but here is one!
