Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Lidded Condiment Jar made by the Whites Pottery of Utica, N.Y.
Dating between 1890 and 1907, this piece is a wonderful example of the skill that the Whites Pottery had gained in molded stoneware during those years. It is featured in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: ONeida County Stoneware, p. 78 (there it has no lid and is considered a "vase").
This beauty features Eight Sides, Bulbous Top, Narrow Base, and Fancy Footer. Grapevines adorn the shoulder and tall leaves accent the sides. Additional molded decoration in the footer. THe lid has a beaded knob, embossed grapevines matching the a base, and two more rings of beadwork. Molded opening for a serving spoon. Cobalt accents in the embossed decoration. Stands 7 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. The base is mint, and the lid has three pinhead-size nibbles on the side of the knob. That's it!
