Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Tiny Stoneware Butter Crock made for "H. F. Behrens, Company, Wheeling, W. VA."
Behrens was a grocery merchant in Wheeling who usually had his stoneware made in SW PA (probably Greensboro).
Dating around 1880, this beauty features a Crock versus the Typical Jar Form, and a Stencil in 3 Lines Filling the Front accented by Leaves. The greatest feature here is that this crock is so small: 5 3/4" tall and 6 1/2" wide across the top!
Very Good Condition. Three 1/4" chips on the tooled rim, and a faint hairline across the bottom that comes up 1 1/2" below "Wheeling". No base chips, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 1 1/2" chip inside the rim that appears to be in the making where it stuck to the piece above it in the kiln.
