Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this fantastic 1/2 Gallon Wax Sealer Canning Jar.
The color and decoration indicate that it was made by either the Boughner or one of the Hamilton potteries of Greensboro, Pennsylvania. The leaf motif was a Boughner creation also seen later on Hamilton pieces.
Circa 1870, this beauty has an Unusual Combination of Decorations. The top and bottom stripes frame two squiggle stripes, a row of comma vining, and two Boughner leaves. The three middle decorations are often found alone of wax sealers, not all together. Stands 8 1/8" tall.
Excellent Condition. A half-dozen small chips inside the rim (1/4" or less), two shallow chips on the front bottom (1/8", 1/2"), and some very light staining on the reverse. No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. Drier, yet pleasing cobalt in the making.
