    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Superb 5 Gallon Crock made and stamped by "Burger & Lang, Rochester, N.Y."


    This is the mark of John Burger, Jr., George Burger, and their brother-in-law, George Lang who ran the family's pottery under this stamp from 1867-1877 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 74).


    This beauty sports a Large 5 Gallon Size, Semi-Squared Rim, the Oval Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and an Unusual Decoration for this Maker: An Elaborate Cobalt Carnation Executed with a Slip Cup. The carnation sports five leaves and a blossom with seven petals with cobalt accents throughout. The decorators at Burger were some of the best and this carnation shows considerable skill in shading and accenting of the decoration.  Measures 13" tall and 12 1/2" wide across the top. 


    Excellent Condition.  A 3/4" chip inside the rim in the back and two chips outside the rim in front of the left handle (3/8", 1/2"), and two narrow chips on the bottom edge (5/8", 1 1/2").  No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
