Item 3574

 

Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 5 Gallon Churn made by "T. F. Reppert, Successor to Jas. Hamilton and Co., Greensboro, PA."

 

Reppert bought out the James Hamilton pottery in 1880, and after running it with a partner, ran it alone from 1884-1890.  

 

This Beauty Sports the Uncommon Churn Form with Two Top and Bottom Stripes that frame the Company Advertising in 5 Lines.  The advertising is accented in the top cornters by Tulips, in the middle by a "bowtie", and on the bottom by leaves.  Complete stencil in dark cobalt on a light gray background for strong contrast.  Additional cobalt at the handle terminals.  Stands 17 3/4" tall. 

 

Excellent Condition.  A single hairline from the rim behind the right handle that stops at the inner ridge (1) and outer shoulder molding (1 1/2") (closeup), and a flat 1/2" flake at the base.  That's it!  No rim chips, stains, or restoration.  Typical manufacturing imperfections including  a divot in the R or Reppert where straw burned away in the firing.  

 

Ships double-boxed, insured, and FREE.
