Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 1/2 Gallon Stoneware Decorated Butter Crock.
The distinctive decoration indicates that it was made by Noah Furman of Cheesequake, New Jersey in the mid 19th century (M. Lelyn Branin, The Early Makers of Handcrafted Earthenware and Stoneware in Central and Southern New Jersey, p. 191-193).
Dating about 1850, this beauty features a Carefully Tooled Rim for Use with a Tie-Down, and Delicate and Artistic "Spitting" Tulip Decoration in Pretty Cobalt Blue. The decoration has the freehand capacity number and a flower with five leaves and a blossom with six petals and three stamin. Measures 7 1/2" tall and 9 1/2" wide across the top.
Very Good Condition. A single chip on the rim above the right handle. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The little brown flecks are melted grains of iron in the clay in the making.
