    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderific 4 Gallon Stoneware Crock made and stamped by "J. & E. Norton, Bennington, VT."


    This is the mark of Julius Norton and his cousin, Edward Norton, who worked together in the family pottery from 1850-1859 ( William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 41-44).


    This beauty sports the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and a Huge Floral Bouquet in an Urn Decoration.  The decoration is executed with precision with a slip cup.  The floral has two central flowers with leaves surrounding them on all sides.  The urn has three panels, base, and two handles.  Measures 11 1/2" tall and 12" wide across the top.  


    Good Condition.   A very tight 3" vertical line at the base on the back that wraps under as a 3 1/2" "Y" (closeup 1).  Scattered small flakes on the lower 1/3rd of the crock, mainly to the left and right of the decoration.   Not active (closeups 2 & 3).   Some flakes filled in on the lower 1/2" and some exfoliation on the base.  No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or stains.
