Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Jug made and stamped by "F. H. Cowden, Harrisburg." (partial stamp)
This is the mark of John Wallace Cowden who ran the company with this stamp from 1880-1888. (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 55-58)
This beauty features the maker's stamp with cobalt wash and one of this pottery's signature decorations, a Stenciled Cobalt Snowflake in Bright and Shiny Cobalt. The decoration within the snowflake is very elaborate and attractive. The stencil is crisp and complete too! Measures 13 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. A couple small spots of light staining. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
A classic Cowden Jug
