Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1 Gallon Stoneware Pitcher stamped "Whites Binghamton."
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 Short and Squatty Form with Squared Rim, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Poppy Decoration Executed with a Slip Cup in Bright and Shiny Cobalt. This was a signature design for Whites. The floral is elaborate with two pairs of different types of leaves, and a blossom with five center sections surrounded by eight smaller petals. All the decoration is accented with dots and dashes. Stands 9 3/8" tall.
Very Good Condition. A rim chip on the right side (closeup), and some wear to the decoration. No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
