• Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Preserve Jar 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 a Floral Bouquet Incorporating a Pear!  An early edible bouquet!  The decoration is executed with a slip cup in strong cobalt by an expert hand.   Stands 11 1/4" tall.


    Excellent Condition.  Even wear around the inner rim where a lid would sit, a 1 1/4" chip on the rim in the back, a flat 1/4" chip on the right handle, and some very light staining in places. That's it!  No base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A 1" surface drying line inside the rim in the making.


    A unique fruit and floral bouquet by Norton.
