    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Tiny 1 Gallon Stoneware Crock made and stamped by "E. & L. P. Norton, Bennington, VT."

     

    This is the mark of Edward Norton and Luman Preston Norton, the son of Julius Norton, who worked together in the family pottery from 1861-1881 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 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.  Lots of leaves, blossoms, tendrils, and dots going everywhere!  Bright Bennington cobalt throughout the decoration on a light clay for strong contrast.  Best of all, it is the hard to find 1 Gallon size!  Measures 7 1/4" tall and 8 1/2" wide across the top. 

     

    Excellent Condition.  A 1/4" chip inside the rim, an 1/8" nibble outside the rim, and some very light staining from use.  No base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.  A surface-only 2" firing line within a kiln furniture touch on the right side at the bottom in the making (closeup).
