Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 Gallon Churn made and stamped by the "Ottman Bro's & Co., Fort Edward, N.Y."
This is the stamp of William and Gilbert Ottman who ran the company from 1872-1892 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware , p. 68).
This beauty sports the pottery stamp with cobalt wash and a Fancy Freehand Cobalt Floral Bouquet with Lots of Detail and Bright Cobalt. It was executed by a masterful hand. Stands 15 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. Six narrow chips on the interior seating ring (1/4" to 1"), a 1/2" chip inside the rim, a 3" hairline at the base that wraps under 3 1/2" (closeup), and a few faint stains from use. That's it! No outer rim or base chips, cracks, or restoration.
