Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Blue and White Spongeware Pitcher with Vertical Sponging.
Dating around 1900, this beauty feature a Double-Rolled Rim and Base and Six Vertical Rows of Sponging. Lots of care was used in the decoration which adds to its value. Even the handle is neatly sponged.
This is the hallboy pitcher of 6 3/4" tall, so named for the lowly paid boys that used to keep the hallways in public and apartment buildings cleaned up. It is a utilitarian size.
Excellent Condition. A single pinhead-size nibble inside the rim, and two chips (1/4", 1/2") and minor nibbles on the bottom edge. No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
I have only seen two of these in the last decade. I bought both and they are virtually identical, so someone else should have this one to enjoy (I am also out of room!).
