Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Decorated Pitcher 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).
Dating to the 1870's, this beauty features the Uncommon Pitcher Form with Tall Neck and Rounded Body Form with Freehand Decoration. There is a series of graduated stripes on each side of the spout, a stripe down the front of the spout, and a stripe on the top and bottom of the body of the pitcher that frame the company advertising. All the cobalt is rich and really stands out from the light gray clay background. Stands 10" tall.
Excellent Condition. Minor wear along the front of the spout from pouring. That is it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
An exceptionally clean example of an uncommon pitcher. Was in my own collection over a decade ago and has come back home for someone else to enjoy.
