Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Large 2 Gallon Decorated Stoneware Cake Crock with Lid.
This crock is easily attributed to Richard Remmey who made stoneware in Philadelphia at the family pottery from the 1860's to the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-9).
Circa 1870, this beauty features a Finely Tooled Rim, Two Tulips on Each Side, Cobalt Accents with Squiggle Line below on Each Handle, and a Lid with Three Leaves. The tulips have a blossom of 6 petals arising from a dozen leaves. Shiny cobalt too! Measures 7" tall and 11 1/2" wide.
Excellent Condition. The base has two small chips on the outer edge (1/4", 1/2"). That is it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The lid has two small chips on the knob (1/4", 3/8"), a 3/16" chip on the outer edge, and a 1" chip on the bottom of the seating ring on the underside. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Two adjacent 1" drying lines on the edge in the making.
