    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this monumental 6 Gallon Crock made and stamped by "Burger & Co., Rochester, N.Y."

     

    This is the mark of John Burger, Jr. who ran the family's pottery under this stamp from 1877-1879 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 74).

     

    This beauty sports a Large Size, the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and an Elaborate Daisy and Tulip Executed with a Slip Cup.  The floral has five leaves accented with edge stripes, a center stem of 5 more leaves, a large open daisy with 9 petals with edge accents and a checkboard center, and a tulip with 3 petals of which the outer two are checkboard and the middle one is striped.  Measures 14" tall and 13" wide across the top.
