Beautiful advertising fruit preserves stoneware crock, dating from late 1800s through early 1900s. Cylindical body with sloped shoulder and a wire and wood handle threaded through the side lugs. Great condition printing on the front reading HOME MADE PRESERVES / MANUFACTURED BY / H. JOHNSON & CO / BOSTON, MASS. Includes a lid which I don't believe is the original lid as it doesn't quite seat down into the rim.
But it's a good match as you can see in the photos. Measures about 6 tall and 5 3/4 across the base. The top rim is 4 5/8 across.Weighs a little under 2.5 lb. Its in good condition with no chips or cracks. There is some fine glaze crackelature which appear to be age related and adds to its charm. Includes a lid which I don't believe is the original lid as it doesn't quite seat inside the rim. The item "Antique Stoneware Preserves Crock Wire and Wood Handle, H.
