This is the mark of Edward Norton who ran the Norton Pottery in Bennington from 1881-1885 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 43-44).
This beauty sports a clear pottery stamp with cobalt wash and a Signature Norton Decoration- A Fancy Floral Bouquet Executed with a Slip Cup. Bright Bennington cobalt throughout the decoration on a light clay for strong contrast. Stands 14" tall.
Excellent Condition. A shallow and narrow 1 1/4" chip on the top of the spout on the left side near the handle, a 3/4" chip on the bottom at the edge, and some light staining from use. That's it! No hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
