Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 Gallon Stoneware Jug 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 a clear pottery stamp with cobalt wash, and an Imposing Freehand Cobalt Bluebird on a Branch in Bright Cobalt. The canvas was large and the decorator took advantage of it! Stands 16 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A chip on the top of the spout on the right side (closeup). That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Typical manufacturing imperfections: salt drip, kiln touches.
