Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Semi-Ovoid Jug made and stamped by "Jacob Caire & Co, Poughkeepsie, N.Y."
This is the mark of Jacob Caire who ran his father's (John Caire) second pottery in Poughkeepsie from 1845 to 1853 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware , p. 65).
This beauty features a Semi-Ovoid Form, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Brushed Cobalt Tulip Dancing Across the Front. Stands 12 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. Wear on the capacity number like it once had some kind of additional metal carrying handle or dispenser attached (?). That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A kiln touch on the left side in the making.
