Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Blue and White Butter Crock in the Reverse Pyramids and Columns Pattern.
It was made and stamped on the bottom by the "Burley & Winter Pottery Co, Crooksville, O." [Ohio]
Circa 1900, this beauty features Vertical Columns with a Border of Reversed Pyramids around the Top. The lid has an embossed flower on the knob, fancy border in the middle, and shorten columns on the edge. Diffused blue coloration on both base and lid. The base measures 4" tall and 6 1/2" wide across the top.
You can read about this butter crock in Terry Taylor and Terry and Kay Lowrance, Collector's Encyclopedia of Salt Glaze Stoneware, p. 22.
Good Condition. The base has four flat chips on top and inside the rim (1/4" to 1/2"), a minor 1/8" nibble on the base. The lid has a series of chips on the underside of the edge and around the seating ring. No hairlines, cracks, or restoration on either base or lid.
