Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Stunning 2 Gallon Stoneware Jug made and stamped by "J. Norton & Co., Bennington, VT."

 

This is the mark of Julius Norton, his cousin Edward Norton, and his son, Luman who worked together in the family pottery from 1859-1861 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 41-44).

 

This beauty sports the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and a Huge Bird on a Branch in Bright Bennington Cobalt Blue.   The artist used his large canvas to impress us with his decoration.  Stands 14" tall.

 

Excellent Condition.  A shallow 5/8" chip on the right side of the spout toward the handle, and some light staining near the bottom.  That's it!  No base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.  A 3/16" iron ping near the top of the bird's head in the making.
