Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Monumental Yellow Ware Lidded Bread Box, Larder Box.
The glaze makes it easy to attribute to the pottery of William Crawford and Adam Morrison who founded the Rosslyn Pottery in Gallatown, Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1879.
This beautiful covered bread box, larder features a Molded Decoration of Sprigs of Oak with Leaves and Acorns, and Molded Bamboo Trim and Handles. Gorgeous brown and green running glaze. Measures 14" long, 9" wide, and 11" tall to the top of the handle.
Excellent Condition. The base has wear and minor chips around the outside of the rim (closeup), a 3/8" chip on an embossed oak stem on each side, a couple 1/4" chips on the embossed bamboo, and a 2 3/4" chip on the base trim in the back. The lid has small 1/4" or less chips around the bottom edge, and wear to the bottoms of the corners from use. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration on lid or base.
Besides being a spectacular piece of pottery, this beauty would look phenomenal in many decorating schemes.
