Coming 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 with horizontal striping, and a blossom with two petals with vertical striping. Gorgeous! Stands 15" tall.
Excellent Conditon. A couple very faint stain runs. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. Some faint, surface horizontal firing lines on the back near the bottom in the making (closeup).
One of the finest Whites jugs with the orchid decoration that I have seen in a while.
