Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Jug made and stamped for "Seiter & Saxton, Groceries, Liquors & Wintes, Troy, N.Y."
As the decoration indicates, this is the work of the Norton Pottery of Bennington, Vermont.
Circa 1880, this beauty features the Merchant Stamp with Cobalt Wash and a Large Norton Stylized Floral in Pretty Cobalt Blue. Stands 13 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. Overall staining from use, but no chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration. A small kiln touch in the decoration and shallow drying line at the bottom of the handle in the making.
It is very rare to find a Norton piece with advertising, especially from Troy NY that was so near a lot of local potteries, but here is one!
