Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Decorated Jar made by "Jas. Hamilton & Co., Greensboro, Pa."
James Hamilton ran his pottery in Greensboro from the 1860's to 1880 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 154-157).
This beauty features a Patriotic Shield Outlined with Dashes that Contanis the Company Advertising with Leaf Flourishes. Crisp and complete stencil in dark cobalt on a light gray glaze for maximum contrast. Stands 8 1/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. A 1/2" chip inside the rim, two pinhead-size nibbles on the left side toward the bottom, and a faint surface-only 1 1/2" line on the base that wraps under 2" that is not visible inside (closeup). No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Two stone pings inside in the making.
