Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Exquisitely Molded Covered Canister with Embossed Floral and Original Lid.
It was made by the Whites of Utica Pottery between 1890 and 1907 when Whites made its fabulous molded stoneware. A similar piece can be seen in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware, pp. 25, 26.
This beauty features a Raised Background of Geometric Designs that Hosts a Cartouche of Two Daisies with Cobalt Accent. Embossed Leaves grace the Side Seams. The lid repeats the geometric design with a center Star of David. Measures 5" tall and 5" wide.
Very Good Condition. The base has a 1/2" chip on the front of the handle holder on the left side (still holds a handle just fine), and six small chips on the underside of the footer (1/8" to 1/4") where they do not show from the side. No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The lid has a minor 3/16" chip on the top outer ring and a minor 1/2" ping line on the inside of the overhang. No bottom chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
