Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Stoneware 8" Wax Sealer 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 two top and a bottom stripe that frame the company stencil surrounding a lily pad. The light gray clay and the gorgeous cobalt make for a strong contrast and visual appeal. Stands 8" tall.
Excellent condition. Six small chips on the inner rim (1/8" to 3/8"), and two 3/16" chips inside the top rim. That's it! No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
A James Hamilton jar with exceptional color!
