• Item 4692

     

    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Jar made and stamped by S. JOHNSTON & SON, BEAVER, PA.  This is the mark of Socrates Johnston and Son who potted in Beaver PA in the 1860's and 1870's (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, p. 137).

     

    This beauty is a superb example of Johnston's pottery and of Beaver County pottery in general. Johnston pieces are not common, but this example has a clear maker's mark and some of the best cobalt freehand decoration to be found on any pottery. The floral fills the entire front with vining and 3 huge fuchsias. Stands 11" tall.

     

    Comes from an old Pennsylvania collection. 

     

    Excellent Condition.  Some modest surface wear.  That's it!  No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. 

     

    Ships double-boxed, insured, and FREE!
