Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Blue and White Spongeware Barrel Pitcher.
Dating around 1900 to 1920, this beauty is formed as a Barrel with Wooden Staves and Four Metal Hoops. Sponging is wonderfully done in neat vertical and horizonal rows of dark cobalt. Stands 6" tall.
Very Good Condition. A narrow 5/8" strip on the top of the left side of the spout where the glaze has worn off (closeup 1), and a hairline around the top of the handle that is partially a firing line in the making (closeup 2). No base chips, body hairlines or cracks, stains, or restoration.
