Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Early 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar made and stamped by "N. White, Utica."
This is the mark of Noah White who established his pottery in Utica, N.Y. in 1838. It ran until 1907 under him, his sons, and his grandsons (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 69-70).
Dating early in Whites career, around 1840, this beauty features an Ovoid Form, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Dash, Capacity Number and Tulip and Leaf on the Front, and a Dash of Cobalt on Each Handle. Stands 10 1/2" tall.
Good Condition. An 1/8" nibble inside and a 1/2" flake on top of the rim, a 3" hairline behind the left handle that stops inside at the inner rim (closeup 1), eight scattered glaze flakes (1/8" to 3/8"), a couple surface pings (closeup 2), and a 1/4" chip at the base. No restoration.
