Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Crock made and stamped by the "New York Stoneware Company, Fort Edward, N.Y."
This company was in production in Fort Edward, New York from 1859-1885.
This beauty features the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash and a Dog Running in the Grass Decoration. The decoration is executed with a skilled hand in strong cobalt blue. Measures 10 1/2" tall and 10 3/4" wide across the top.
Excellent Condition. A few 1/4" knife sharpening marks inside the rim, two flat 1/4" chips on top of the rim, some chips under the back side of the left handle, a small flake on top of the right handle, some glaze henpecks above the decoration, a surface craze line by the nose of the dog, and some small stains from use. No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
This is the first piece of stoneware decorated with a dog that I have ever had to offer my customers. And he will never chew your slippers!
