An impressive salt-glazed Stoneware Crock with A+ Cobalt Floral decoration, 6-Gallon capacity, New York State origin, ca. Cylindrical, wheel-thrown form with tooled rim and applied lug handles. Impressed with a cobalt-washed makers stamp reading: JOHN BURGER / ROCHESTER with a freehand Slip-trailed capacity to the right. Front features a highly-detailed Double Floral in the boldest of Slip-Trailed Cobalt.
I would consider the Floral Decorations of John Burger and Frederick Stetzenmeyer! Among the most artistically executed of all American Stoneware. Condition : Several portions of the surface, including a vertical crack on reverse and minor touch-ups to the decoration, have been professionally restored back to Excellent overall condition, and there is a small chip on the inner rim.
This is arguably one of the most detailed Burger Cobalt Florals I have seen. Displays brilliantly with exceptional color and zero fry on the decoration. This commanding 6G will feature prominently in any collection of Antique Stoneware or Americana.
