    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 5 Gallon Churn made by "Jas Hamilton & Co., Greensboro, Pa."

    Dating to the 1870's, this beauty features the Churn Form with Prominent Eagle Decoration.  From the top down are a cobalt stripe at the rim, a squiggle stripe with two units of comma vining at the shoulder, another squiggle stripe, a fabulous eagle with three arrows clutched in his talon and a banner with the company name in his beak, the company address underscroted by two more squiggle stripes, the capacity number flanked by leaves, and a bottom bottom stripe.  Stands 18 1/4" tall.  


    Excellent Condition.  A few small glaze flakes inside at the bottom, a 1/4" chip inside the rim, a 5" hairline at the bottom of the left side that wraps under 3", some minor staining, and some scattered wear on the decoration.  No outer rim or base chips, or restoration.  A kiln touch on the right side in the making.   Stands 18 1/4" tall.
