Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Little 1/2 Gallon Butter Crock made for "Chas. R. Miller, Fancy Groceries, 2339 Chapline St., Wheeling, W. VA."
Circa 1880, this beauty features the Uncommon 1/2 Gallon Size, Tooled Rim, and Five Lines of Stenciled History. All the writing is crisp and clear. Measures 5 1/2" tall and 6 1/4" wide across the top.
I have not encountered this merchant before.
Excellent Condition. A 1/4" chip near the bottom on the right side where a stone or impurity popped out, and two 1/4" chips on the underside at the edge. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 1/2" stone ping inside the rim in the making.
