• Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Jug made and stamped by N. A. White & Son, Utica, N.Y."


    This is a work of Nicholas White and his sons, William and Charles, who ran the family pottery from 1865-1886 (William Ketchum, American Stoneware , pp. 69-70).


    The jug was made for "C. H. Saulpaugh, Wines & Liquors, Rome, N.Y." 


    Dating about 1870, this beauty features the Pottery Stamp, Cobalt Merchant Stencil, and the Top Dipped in Cobalt!  Of all the potters with which I am familiar, only Whites made it a practice to dip the tops of their jugs in cobalt like this.   And we appreciate it!.  Measures 13" tall.


    Excellent Condition.  Light chipping on the spout, a wear spot on the back center, and a flat 3/8" chip on the bottom.  That's it!  No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.  Two stone pings on the top half in the making. 


    A pretty spectacular Whites Merchant Jug.  Only one I have ever seen made for this merchant.
