Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Gorgeous 1 Gallon Decorated Butter Crock.
This crock is easily attributed to Richard Remmey who made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1860, this beauty features a Inscribed Lines Below the Rim, Two Tulips on Each Side, and Cobalt Accents with Squiggle Line below on Each Handle. The tulips have a blossom of 4 petals arising from 7 to 12 leaves. Shiny cobalt too! Measures 4 3/4" tall and 8 1/2" wide.
Very Good Condition. Chips around the inside and outside of the rim and a couple minor nibbles at the base. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 1" chip at the base is in the making and glazed over.
