Pictured is a seldom seen & uncommon blue on blue spongeware butter crock offered for sale. The covered butter is sponged decorated with large smoke ring/wedding ring designs. The lid sits upon a recessed rim & has a matching smoke ring pattern, original to the butter. The butter has a wonderful look & great eye-appeal. A very small percentage of spongeware, less than 1%, is sponged decorated with blue on blue versus the traditional blue & white.
The 2# butter crock measures 4 1/8" in height, 6" in base diameter, & dates from 1895 - 1920. It's in immaculate condition with no nicks, damage or repairs.
There is a slight inmanufacture imperfection on the topside of the cover which is overglazed, see pic. Likewise, the light area seen in the third picture is a bisque, unglazed area.
