    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 Gallon Stoneware Jar made by "James 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 a Larger Size and Top to Bottom Decoration.  The rim boasts two wide cobalt stripes.  The shoulder sports a wavy stripe.  The body of the jar advertises the maker with roses in the top corners, a floral in the middle, and leaves at the bottom.  The bottom offers the capacity number flanked by leaves, while the bottom edge bears a wide cobalt stripe.  Strong cobalt!   Stands 14 3/4" tall.  


    Glued Condition.   The only apology is for being in two halves.  Somehow the top and bottom halves separated so neatly that they were glued back together with just a trace line.  The line is mostly in the middle, but arches up over the decoration on the front.  See the closeups.  I have never seen such a clean break or neat reglue.  Otherwise mint 😁 Did I mention strong cobalt? 😎
