Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 1/2 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 Two Crossed Leaves with Cobalt Accents. The cobalt is brilliant and bold. It also has the distinction of the vertical wave lines from being wrapped in cheesecloth while it dried prior to firing. Measures 7" tall and 10" wide across the top.
Excellent Condition. A 1/2" flat chip on the underside, and some light, small, and scattered stains. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
