Item 3879

 

Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this splendid 4 Gallon Stoneware Crock made and stamped by "W. Roberts, Binghamton, N.Y."

 

This is work of William Roberts, son-in-law of Noah White of Whites Utica Pottery.  He founded a branch of the family business in Binghamton in 1848 and ran it until 1888 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 71)

 

This beauty features a Larger Crock Size, the Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Folk Art Dotted Bird on a Stylized Nest Decoration.  This birdy has flowing dotted wings and bushy tail, and holds a more vegetation in his mouth with which to build his nest.  Executed with a slip cup in strong cobalt blue too!  True Folk Art.  Measures 11 1/2" tall and 11 1/2" wide across the top.  

 

Excellent Condition.  Two minor nibbles inside the rim (1/8", 1/4").  That's it!  No outer rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.   Exceptionally clean example.
