• Item 4912

     

    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Stoneware Jug whose decoration indicates that it was made by the Somerset Potters Works of Somerset, Massachusetts. This pottery was run by Leonard and Benjamin G. Chace from 1847-1882 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 51).

     

    This beauty features a Double Plume that Frames a Stylized Cornucopia with Additional Accent Leaves at the Bottom.  The cornucopia has 5 rows of dots climbing from one to five as you move up.   All the decoration is executed in very bright cobalt blue.  Stands 14 1/2" tall. 

     

    Excellent Condition.  A minor 1/8" nibble to the left of the decoration and two chips on the base in the back (3/8", 3/4").  No spout chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.   

     

    Ships double-boxed, insured, and FREE

     

    Note: many people attribute this decoration to F. B. Norton who has a similar one with more defined plumes and a center tornado.  But this version of the decoration is found on jugs with Somerset spouts and sometimes with accents like those on the Somerset "singing birds."
