    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare 2 Gallon Stoneware Polar Bear Water Cooler made by the Whites Pottery of Utica, New York.


    Dating between 1890 and 1907, this piece is a wonderful example of the skill that the Whites Pottery had gained in molded stoneware during those years.  This piece is not found in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware


    This beauty features a Bordered Scene with Two Polar Bears on a Small Wrecked Boat at the Mouth of a Cave with Hanging Ice Cycles (possibly auditioning for a Coca-Cola commercial!).  There is also a Large Bouquet of Flowers on the Back.  The spigot emerges from the mouth of a lion!  Stand 12 1/2" tall.   


    Very Good Condition.  An impact on the bottom of the right side with some filler (closeup 1) which shows a little inside (closeup 2).  Otherwise as made.   A fine 3" surface drying/firing line inside in the making.
