Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 3 Gallon Preserve Jar or Churn made and stamped by "Wm. A. MacQuoid, Pottery Works, Little West 12th St., N.Y."
Macquoid made stoneware in Manhattan from 1863 to 1879. His decorators left some very unusual decorations as this piece attests! (William Ketchum, Jr. American Stoneware, p 63).
This beauty features the pottery stamp with cobalt wash and a Large Bouquet of Three Carnations in Bold Cobalt Blue. The decoration has a lot more folk appeal than the typical New York floral decorations. Stands 13 1/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1/4" chip and some minor nibbles on the seating rim inside, a 1/4" flake on the back of the right handle, a narrow 1" chip on the underside at the edge, and some light staining at the base. That's it! No outer rim chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
When have you ever seen carnations on a crock?
