Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderfully Small 1 Gallon Preserve Jar made and stamped by "F. B. Norton & Co., Worcester, MA."
This is the work of Frank Norton and Frederick Hancock who made stoneware in Worcester using this stamp from 1856-1868 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 52-53).
This beauty features a Unusually Small 1 Gallon Size, the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Large Stylized Floral in Bright Cobalt Blue. Stands 9" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 3/4" chip on the base, and some light and scattered stains from use. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A 1" vertical surface firing line below the decoration in the making.
You rarely see Norton stoneware preserves in this little one gallon size!
