Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 gallon stoneware jug 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 pottery stamp with cobalt wash, and a Floral Bouquet Resting on its Side.  It has a center blossom, dots in all decoration, and even a little bow on the end of the stem.  Stands 11 1/4"


Very Good Condition.  Two 1/2" chips on the bottom of the right side (closeup).  Some manufacturing imperfections:  minor roughness on the top of the spout, a 3/4" chip on the top of the handle and back shoulder to the right of the handle, and a stone ping at the front bottom-  all in the making.  No spout chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  


A Norton jug sporting what looks like a wedding bouquet in very good condition.
