    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 Gallon Stoneware Cake Crock made and stamped by the "Frank B. Norton & Co., Worcester, Mass."

     

    This is the mark of Frank Norton and Frederick Hancock who operated the pottery in Worcester using this stamp from 1858-1877 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 52-53).

     

    This beauty features the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Parrot Amidst Two Plumes.   The parrot has three head feathers and a dotted back.  The cobalt is brilliant and bold.  When have you ever seen a 4 gallon cake crock with a parrot?!  Measures 9 1/4" tall and 13 1/4" wide across the top.  

     

    Excellent Condition.  A single minor 1/8" nibble inside the rim and some light staining at the base.  That's it!  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.  A small kiln touch at the bottom front and a stoneping on the left handle terminal in the making.
