Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Jar made by "Hamilton & Jones, Greensboro, Pa."
This is the work of Frank Hamilton and John Jones who worked in Greensboro from 1865 to 1897 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 154-157).
Dating around 1880, this beauty features one of Hamilton and Jones's Fancier Stencils. From the top down are a floral garland, the company name surrounding a large "&" framed by flowers, and the company address framed top and bottom by rows of diamonds. All the stenciling is clear and crisp. Stands 10 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A minor 1/4" chip on the base in the back. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. An 1/8" stone ping in the decoration on the upper right side in the making.
