Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful and uncommon 8" Wax Sealer Canning Jar made by "J. E. Eneix, New Geneva, PA. "
This is the mark of James Eneix who made stoneware in New Geneva for the brief period of 1874-1876 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 165). Eneix stoneware is not commonly seen due to the brief period of manufacture.
This beauty features the Company Name and Address Accented with Leaves at the Top and Sheaves of Wheat at the Bottom. All the decoration is executed in bold and dark cobalt blue. Stands 8 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. Four minor nibbles on the inner rim (pinhead-size to 3/16"), and six glaze chips inside to top rim (1/8" to 1/4"). That's it! No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The line in the rim (closeup) and some roughness in a couple places along the bottom edge are in the making and partially glazed over.
