Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Gorgeous 1 Gallon Stoneware Cream Pot made and stamped on the shoulder by the "Beaumont Pottery, York, Maine" and scratched on the bottom with a cross and the date 1986.
This is the work of Jerry Beaumont, a contemporary master potter. In my experience, his work ranks supreme among the contemporary potters and is escalating in value.
This beauty features the pottery stamp and a Cornucopia filled with Leaves and Flowers. All the decoration is created with a slip cup in strong cobalt and accented throughout. Exceptionally rich and shiny. Measures 9" tall and 6 1/4" wide across the top. About 1 gallon.
The decoration closely resembles that of Rochester, NY potters in the mid 19th century- particularly Harrington and Burger. One like this from the period in this size would run over $10,000. You can have this one for much less!
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
