Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Blue and White Rolling Pin in the Wildflower Pattern. You can see similar rolling pins in this pattern in Taylor and Lowrance, Collector's Encyclopedia of Salt Glaze Stoneware, pp. 142-145.
It was made for advertising and reads, "Compliments of Thomas J. Trumbauer, Coopersburg, PA."
Dating around 1900 to 1920, this beauty features Stripes and Two Bunches of Wildflowers around Each End, and the Three Lines of Stenciled Advertising in the Middle. All the cobalt is strong and shiny which is not often the case on these pins. Measures 8" long and 3" in diameter. The handles and rod inbetween are original. Needs a new hollow dowell over the metal.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind. A 3/16" stone ping and a small 1/4" glaze skip in the making.
