    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Crock made and stamped by the "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).

     

    Dating about 1870, this beauty features the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and--the Main Attraction-- a Large Freehand Orchid in Strong Cobalt! It has two striped leaves, two blue leaves with cobalt-filled centers, and a blossom with one cobalt-filled and one striped petal.  A blend of slip cup and brush decoration.   The slip cup outlined the floral and the stripes, and a brushed filled in the decoration. Measures 10 1/4" tall and 11 1/2" wide across the top.

     

    Very Good Condition.  A water glass ring inside from use, four small chips on the rim in the back (1/8" to 1/2"), a section on the back with glaze flakes with a Y shaped hairline at the base below it that wraps under 3" (closeup).  No inner rim or base chips, outer stains, or restoration.  The cobalt on the tips of the stripes in the right petal of the blossom came off in the firing.
