    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this fantastic 5 Gallon Decorated Crock made and stamped by "J. & E. Norton, Bennington, VT."   

     

    This is the work of Julius Norton and his cousin, Edward Norton who worked in Bennington using this mark from 1850-1859 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 42).  

     

    This beauty features the Uncommon Large Size, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Norton Classic:  a Chick Pecking Corn amidst Ground Cover, Tree, and Fence!  The cobalt blue is spectacular!  Measures 13" by 13".  

     

    Very Good Conditon.  A 1/2" chip on the rim in the back, a 4" hairline from the rim to the base of the handle on the right side (closeup 1), and a small T at the bottom of the left side that trails under as a spider, little of which is visible inside (closeups 2 & 3).  No inner rim or base chips, stains, or restoration.   

     

    A Norton Classic!
