Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Jug made for "Smith & Brown, 40 Charlotte St., Utica, N.Y."
It was made and stamped by "N. A. White & Son, Utica, N.Y." This is a work of Nicholas White and his sons, William and Charles, who ran the family pottery from 1865-1886 (William Ketchum, American Stoneware , pp. 69-70).
Dating around 1880, this beauty features the Pottery Stamp and Four Lines of Stenciled Cobalt Advertising in Large Block Letters. Stands 13 3/4" tall.
Very Good Condition. A faint 4" glaze line on the left side not visible inside (closeup), and a 1/4" and 1" ping line on the base. No spout chips, stains, or restoration. A 3" surface-only drying line on the underside in the making.
