• Item 5712


    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar made by "James Hamilton & Co., Manufacturers, 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 Top to Bottom Decoration.  A straight stripe accents the rim and a squiggle stripe adorns the shoulder.  The company advertising surrounding a fancy emblem occupies the body, while the capacity number flanked by leaves and an additional stripe decorate the base.  Strong contrast and visual appeal.  A lip inside to hold a lid which is not often found on Hamilton jars.  Stands 12" tall.  


    Excellent Condition.  Some surface wear to the letting, otherwise as made.  A small kiln kiss on the front in the making.
