Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this most unusual 1 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 the Company Advertising in a Circle Surrounding a Pinwheel Decoration-- All Framed by a Diamond Base with an Oblisk on Each Side. Stands 9 1/2" tall.
I have never seen this decoration before. It reminds me of a mirror that swivels within a frame on a dresser.
Very Good Condition. A narrow 5/8" chip inside the rim. No outer rim or base chips, stains, or restoration. A faint line on the bottom that comes up on the back as a U with 4" sides (closeup) that occurred in the making when the jar lowered slightly on the right side.
