Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Stoneware 1 1/2 Gallon Cream Pot made for the "Variety Store Cherry Valley."

 

This is a small merchant establishment in Cherry Valley, N.Y.

 

Dating around 1870, this beauty features the cream pot form, clear merchant stamp with cobalt wash, and a folk art bird pecking corn.  Typically you see chickens pecking corn on crocks, but here is a little birdie with vertical stripes and dots!  The decoration is executed with a slip cup for greater precision, and the cobalt used is bright and shiny.  Measures 10 1/4" tall and 8" wide across the top.  

 

Very good condition.  An 1/8" nibble and 3/4" chip inside the rim, a 1/4" flake on the right handle, and a 5" hairline from the rim in the back (closeup).  No base chips, stains, or restoration.
