Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this 2 Gallon Stoneware Preserve Jar made and stamped by "Harrington & Burger, Rochester."
This is the work of Thompson Harrington and John Burger who ran the pottery in Rochester from 1851-1854 when John Burger bought Harrington out (William Ketchum, Jr., Potters and Potteries of New York State, 1650-1900, p. 377).
This beauty sports the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, a Freehand Capacity Number, and a Fancy Floral with 6 Leaves, 3 Buds, Oval Blossom, and Accent Marks. The decoration was executed with a slip cup in dark cobalt. Stands 11 1/2" tall.
Good Condition with Professional Restoration. A 2" surface craze line below the left handle. From what I can see inside, professional restoration for two lines from the rim: to the left of the capacity number to the tip of the right-most bud; and from the center of the back down 4" and then horizonally 2" in each direction (anchor shaped). No other chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Some bubbling in the cobalt in the making.
