    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Monumental 3 Gallon Stoneware Jug made and stamped by "Haxstun, Ottman & Co., Fort Edward, N.Y."


    This is the stamp of Andrew K. Haxstun and William and Gilbert Ottman who ran the company from 1867-1872 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 68).


    This beauty sports the potter's stamp with cobalt wash and one of the signature and most desired Haxstun Ottman decorations:  the Pheasant on a Stump!  Standing in all his glory, this bird is drawn with a slip cup in brilliant cobalt blue.  The bird has an elaborate mix of feathers with plenty of details and dots, and measures 9 1/2" from head to tail.  The stump in which he poses emerges out of ground cover and has a prominent stems with shading.  Stands 16" tall.


    Excellent Condition.  Some minor surface wear and some light staining from use.  That's it.  No chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.  A salt drip on the front, two small stone pings on the back, and a surface-only drying line on the base of the handle that does not reach either side (closeup)-- all in the making.


    An exceptional example of an exception design.
