Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 6 Gallon Churn made and stamped by "J. Weaver."
This is the work of John Weaver who made stoneware in Beaver, Pennsylvania from the late 1840's to about 1880 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, p. 113).
Dating around 1850, this beauty has a Churn Form, Carefully Tooled Rim, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, Two Stripes and a Row of Dots at the Shoulder, and a Garland of Five Fushsia Across the Middle. Additional cobalt accents at the handle terminals. All the cobalt is rich and shiny. Stands 20 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. Three small chips at the basae (3/8" to 1/2"). That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Very clean example.
