Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Decorated Jar Stamped in a Shield, "From J. Eberly & Bro., Strasburg, VA."
This is the mark of Jacob Jeremiah Eberly and his brother Joseph who began pottery manufacture in Strasburg in 1874 after buying a share of the Keister Pottery. See the discussion in H. E. Comstock, The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 399.
This beauty features Brushed Cobalt Comma Vining Decorations on Each Side that Frame the Rim and Then Dangle Down the Front. Very strong cobalt on a light gray glaze for maximum contrast. Stands 12 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. Two chips at the rim (1/4", 3/8"), a 2" hairline from the rim above one handle (closeup), and a 1/2" chip at the base. No stains or restoration.
