Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Exquisitely Molded Bean Pot by Whites of Utica.
This beauty features fine detailing that only the Whites Pottery could do in its heyday of making molded stoneware (1890-1907). You can see this piece in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware, p. 22.
One side reads, "Boston, the Home of the Bean" and the other side reads, "Spirit of '76, Bunker Hill." All the writing is embraced by fancy feathers and scroll work. Fancy top and bottom borders frame the decoration. The lid repeats the floral motif. All the decoration is accented with cobalt. Measures 6 1/2" tall to the top of the knob.
Excellent Condition. A single pinhead-size nibble on one letter. That's it! No rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The lid only has some glaze crazing on the underside.
