    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Splendid 6 Gallon Churn made and stamped by "N. A. White and 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, American Stoneware , pp. 69-70).


    Dating about 1870, this beauty features a Large Size, the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and a Ginormous Paddletail Bird on an Orchid Branch. This is one of White's signature decorations and a perennial favorite with collectors. An abundance of rich cobalt blue!.  The bird is 10" from the tip of his beak to the tip of his tail.  The branch has three larger leaves at the bottom, three orchid blossoms, and seven buds.   Comes with a period churn guide.  Stands 18 1/2" tall. 


    Excellent Condition.  Heavy wear around the inner ledge where the lid sits and minor 6" scratch inside from use (closeup).  That's it!  No rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  The lid has restoration for two chips on the top rim (1", 1 1/2").  Otherwise as made.
