Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Wax Sealer Canning Jar made by "Jas. Hamilton & Co., Greensboro, PA."
James Hamilton ran his pottery in Greensboro from the 1860's to 1880 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 154-157).
Dating to the 1870's, this beauty features a Coveted Wax Sealer Form with Tooled Rim and Canted Sides, and Stenciled Advertising with Small Accents. Stands 8" tall.
Excellent Condition. Some shallow chips inside the top edge, and a 3/8" chip on the underside at the edge. That's it! No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. What looks like chips around the groove inside is glaze skippage in the making.
