Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 Gallon Crock made for the merchants, "Kendall & Whitney, Portland, ME."  

 

The decoration indicates that this crock was  made in Fort Edward, N.Y., probably by the Ottman Brothers. William and Gilbert Ottman ran their pottery from 1872-1892 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 68).

 

This beauty features the Merchant Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Large Cobalt Floral in Freehand.  Measures 11 3/4" tall and 12" wide across the top.

 

Excellent Condition.  A 1 1/4" surface-only ping inside the rim (closeup).  That's it!  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  A 1/4" chip on the left handle and a semi-circular mark to the left of the decoration to under the right handle in the making and glazed over.

 

A wonderful Maine merchant crock for your collection.
