Item 2404

 

Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous 3 gallon Stoneware Churn made and stamped by "J. Norton & Co., Bennington, VT."

 

This is the work of Julius Norton, his son Luman, and his cousin Edward Norton who worked in Bennington using this mark from 1859-1861 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp, 42, 44).

 

This beauty features the pottery stamp with cobalt wash, and the coup de grace:  a Large and Bright Cobalt Bouquet of Flowers.  A stunning floral with leaves, center flowers, buds, and tendrils going everywhere.  And whoever mixed the cobalt that day really got it right- rich and shiny.  You may need sunglasses!   Stands 15 1/2"

 

Excellent Condition.  Some traces of water glass staining inside from use, small chips around the inner rim where the lid would sit (nibble to 1/4"), a 1/2" chip inside the top rim and a 1" chip outside that rim behind the right handle, and a 1/4" flake on the left handle.  No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  

 

One of the best Norton churns that I have ever had to offer.
