Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Milk Bowl attributed to R. J. Grier of Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Ralph Grier and family ran a pottery in Mount Jordan, Chester County, Pennsylvania from the 1840's to 1910 (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 12-13).
Dating to the 1870's, this beauty features a Carefully Tooled Rim to Allow a Covering to be Tied Under the Rim, Pinched Spout for Pouring off the Cream, Three Cobalt Dashes to the left of the Spout, and Three Brushed Cobalt Tulips Around the Middle. Each tulip has four leaves and a blossom with six petals each. Measures 5" tall and 11" wide across the top.
Excellent Condition. A 3/4" chip under the spout and a 1" chip under the rim (see pic with of the bowl upsidedown). That's it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
