Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Exquisitely Molded Bean Pot by Whites of Utica.
This beauty features fine detailing that only the Whites Pottery could do in its heyday of making molded stoneware (1890-1907). You can see this piece in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware, p. 22.
One side reads, "Boston, the Home of the Bean" and the other side reads, "Spirit of '76, Bunker Hill." All the writing is embraced by fancy feathers and scroll work. Elaborate top and bottom borders frame the decoration. The lid sports a floral garland. All the decoration is accented with cobalt. Measures 7 1/2" tall to the top of the knob.
Excellent Condition. The base is damage free. The lid has four small chips on the edge/underside (1/8" to 3/8"), but no hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
