Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Jug made and stamped by "F. B. Norton Sons, Worcester, Mass."
This is the work of Frank Norton and his sons who made stoneware in Worcester using this stamp from 1868-1886 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 52-53).
This beauty features the pottery stamp with cobalt wash and a Large Dove on a Branch Decoration Executed with a Slip Cup. The dove has squiggle wing feathers and is perched on an elaborate branch. The entire decoration is created in strong cobalt blue. A signature decoration for the Norton pottery. This one is 1 foot from the bottom tip of the branch to the tip of the bird's tail! Stands 15" tall.
Excellent Condition. A flat 3/8" chip on the spout back by the handle, and a 1 3/4" chip on the underside at the edge on the right side toward the back. That's it! No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
