  • Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Preserve Jar made and stamped by "Burger & Co., Rochester, N.Y."


    This is the mark of John Burger, Jr. who ran the family's pottery under this stamp from 1877-1879 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 74).


    This beauty sports the pottery stamp with cobalt wash and an Elaborate Cobalt
    Wreath Executed with a Slip Cup. The wreath has nearly 45 sections and a bow at the base.  Exceptionally clean glaze and dark cobalt for a visual delight!  Stands 11" tall.


    Very Good Condition.  Some pinhead-size nibbles on the inner seating ring where a lid would sit, a chip inside the top rim (3/8"), two chips outside the top rim (1/8, 1/2"), and a fine and nearly invisible 4" in-body hairline on the back (closeup).  No base chips, stains, or restoration.
