Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Blue and White Spongeware Salt Crock in the Blackberry on Basketweave Pattern.
This beauty features a Basketweave Background with "Salt" Embossed on the Front with Cobalt Accent and Bunches of Blackberries on Each Side. Measures 5 3/4" tall to the top of the hanger, and 5 3/4" wide across the base.
You can find a fine writeup on this item in just the blue and white on plain background in Terry Taylor and and Terry and Kay Lowrance's, Collector's Encyclopedia of Salt Glaze Stoneware , p. 127. This is a rare pattern not represented in the books and only the 3rd one I have ever seen.
Excellent Condition. A 3/8" glaze flake on the bottom. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A 1" firing lline inside (closeup) and a 3/8" straw void on the left side rim-- both in the making.
