Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderfully early 1 Gallon Stoneware Jug made and stamped by Wm. H. Ingell, Taunton, Mass."
This is the mark of William Ingell who ran his pottery with Jonathan W. Ingell in the 1830's to 1840's. (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware , p. 50).
This beauty sports a Short and Squatty Form Useful for Transport in a Wagon, the Pottery Stamp, and a Freehand Floral. Stands 9 1/2" tall.
Very Good Condition. A 3 1/2" surface ping line by the handle (closeup), and some staining from use. No ships, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
An uncommon Ingells jug from Taunton.
