Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous 3 Gallon Stoneware Churn made and stamped by "T. Harrington, Lyons." (Notice that the middle of the stamp is upside-down and letters in the wrong order!)
This is the work of Thompson Harrington who ran the pottery in Lyons from 1852 to 1872 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, pp. 73-74).
This beauty sports the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, a Freehand Capacity Number, and a Brushed Cobalt Floral with a Large Leaf, Dotted Stamp, and a Tulip Executed in Dark and Shiny Cobalt Blue. Stands 13 1/2" tall.
Very Good Condition. A half dozen 1/4" chips on the inner rim where a lid would sit, a flat 3/4" chip on the rim behind the right handle, and water glass staining inside and some traces outside on the back. No base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
