Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 6 Gallon Jar made and stamped by "Kelin."
This is the mark of Charles M. Kelin who potted in Beaver, Pennsylvania in the 1850's and 1860's using this stamp.
There is speculation that when the Hamilton brothers left Beaver for Greensboro, their decoration remained behind, for the decoration on the Kelin jars is virtually identical to early Hamilton pieces from Beaver (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp.135-36).
This beauty features an Unusually Large Size for Beaver Stoneware (6 Gallons), the Pottery Stamp, and a Brushed Vine of Fuchsia Across the Front with 23 Leaves and 3 Blossoms with 6 Petals Each. Stands 17 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. No damage. No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Some small glaze skips on the back of the rim and right handle, and a 2" drying line on the back bottom that wraps under 3"-- all in the making.
