oming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Jug made and stamped by "N. A. White & Son, Utica, N.Y."
This is a work of Nicholas White and his sons, William and Charles, who ran the family pottery from 1865-1886 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 69-70).
This beauty features the pottery stamp with cobalt wash and one of White's signature decorations: The Large Orchid Executed with a Slip Cup. The orchid has three leaves and a blossom with two petals. A combination of stripe decoration executed with a slip cup and cobalt fill made with a brush. Gorgeous! Stands 15 1/4" tall.
Very Good Conditon. Four 1/4" chips- four on the sides of the spout, one on the shoulder and one on the base of the handle. Some light staining near the base from use. No base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
