Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Ovoid Jug Made and Stamped by "Goodwin & Webster, Hartford."
This is the work of Horace Goodwin and Mack Webster who ran the pottery in Hartford from 1831-1840 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 60-61).
This beauty features the Early Ovoid Form with Reeded Neck, the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and an Incised Sailing Ship on the Water! The ship has sails and rigging in full use. Stands 15" tall.
Very Good Condition. A 1/2" chip on the top of the spout on the right side, and two chips on the footer (3/8", 3/4"). A faint line on the bottom that comes up the front and left sides in three places (2" to 2 1/2"). Does not show inside. No stains or restoration. Some small contact marks from the kiln, and a larger chip on the footer in the making and glazed over.
Ready to sail into your collection.
